Hofstra softball pitcher Olivia Galati ties NCAA record by throwing 5th career perfect game

Hofstra's Olivia Galati tied an NCAA Division I record by pitching her fifth career perfect game, and the Pride beat James Madison 8-0 Thursday to advance to the Colonial Athletic Association championship.

Galati (36-10) struck out 10 and threw just 62 pitches in game shortened to six innings because of rain.

A senior from West Babylon, N.Y., she tied Fordham's Jen Mineau (2009-12) for the Division I perfect game record. Galati also threw perfect games against George Mason in 2011, North Carolina-Wilmington in 2012, and Towson and James Madison earlier this year.

A right-hander who turns 22 next month, Galati leads the NCAA with 20 shutouts and 370 strikeouts this season.
