Frain had one appearance during the week, a complete-game win against Western Illinois on Friday. She allowed one unearned run on three hits while striking out six batters. It was eighth time this season she has recorded six or more strikeouts in a start. Frain has now gone 13-straight innings without allowing an earned run.
