The University of Wisconsin’s volleyball team is off to a 6-0 start to its season, winning the NDSU classic yesterday in Fargo, N.D. Junior Courtney Thomas was named the classic MVP, contributing to the Badger’s .275 hitting percentage in a win over the 17th-ranked Louisville Cardinals, holding them to just .087 in hitting percentage. The unbeaten record marks the best start since the 2010 season and it’s the first time the Badgers beat a ranked team since Penn State in 2011 (6th-ranked at the time). Badgers are back home Friday and Saturday to host the InnTowner Invitational.

Pitcher Johnny Hellweg allowed three runs on four hits in six innings of work, as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Chicago Cubs yesterday 5-3. Hellweg (1-3) says it felt good to contribute a win for the Brewers. Despite a sore knee, center fielder Carlos Gomez pinch-hit in the eighth inning and continued the rest of the game. Catcher Jonathan Lucroy hit an RBI-triple in the ninth to seal the win.
