UCLA  8, CS Northridge 0 (5). 
Jessica Hall pitched a 1-hitter.  Top 2nd, Tiumalu doubled, scored on Lidvell single.  One out, Schroeder singled in 2 runs.  Harrison launched a solo HR in 3rd.  UCLA leap-frogged inkto run-rule territory ink the 4th when Fox jacked a grand slam. 

 LSU 7, McNeese State 1.  Five different players logged RBIs during a seven-run third inning as the No. 20 LSU softball team emerged with a 7-1 victory over McNeese State Wednesday at Tiger Park. LSU (10-3) also used strong relief outings from Brittany Mack and Rachele Fico in the circle. The duo limited the Cowgirls (2-9) to only two hits over four innings of work. Mack also racked up a quartet of strikeouts to improve to 3-0 on the season.  LSU sent 12 batters to the plate during the third inning as the Tigers unloaded for seven runs. A McNeese State fielding error coupled with three straight walks, the last drawn by Tiffany Shaw, evened the tally at 1-1.  Two batters later, Ashley Langoni lifted a sacrifice fly to right field to hand the Tigers a 2-1 edge. Anissa Young was hit-by-a-pitch and Tammy Wray coaxed LSU’s fourth walk of the frame to make it 3-1.  A two-run single to centerfield off the bat of Morgan Russell pushed the LSU advantage to 5-1. A Cowgirl throwing error on a pickoff attempt followed by a Jacee Blades RBI single through the left side capped the seven-run inning. McNeese State dented the scoreboard in the visiting half of the third inning after three consecutive two-out singles, the final one by Katie Roux, to grab a 1-0 lead.  Meghan Patterson, reigning two-time LSWA Pitcher of the Week, recorded five strikeouts against two walks over three innings as LSU’s starting pitcher.

 Mississippi State.  Heidi Shape’s fantastic freshman season continued Wednesday as her two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning powered Mississippi State to a 6-4 win against Southern Mississippi Wednesday afternoon at the MSU Softball Field. After USM (5-5) tied the game at four with a home run in the top of the fifth, junior Brittany Gates sparked the decisive inning for Mississippi State (5-5) with a one-out double to the gap in left-center. The Houston, Miss., native had two hits in the game along with fellow junior Ka’ili Smith.  

Georgia Tech.  A grand slam by Sharon Swanson with two outs in the third inning helped lead Kennesaw State (7-3) to a 4-1 win over No. 22/25 Georgia Tech (7-4) Wednesday afternoon at Bailey Park. The Yellow Jackets had eight hits in the game and stranded 13 runners on base, including the bases loaded three times. Senior Kristen Adkins (3-2) took the loss but the four runs were unearned. She allowed nine hits and walked one while striking out five. Senior Kristine Priebe was 2-for-3 for the Yellow Jackets with a walk. Tech’s lone run scored in the sixth inning when freshman Hayley Downs singled, stole second base and scored on a pair of throwing errors by the Owls. Cross was the winning pitcher.  


North Carolina.  Freshmen pitchers Lori Spingola and Sara Buchholz each tossed complete-game shutouts to lead North Carolina over UNC Wilmington 7-0 and 8-0, Wednesday afternoon at Boseman Field. Four different Tar Heels homered – Wheeler, Robinson, Dickey and Blake — in the doubleheader sweep to improve UNC to 6-4 in 2011   

South Carolina Upstate swept NC Central 8-0, 13-1.  Morgan Childers (Kings Mountain, N.C.) was dominant in game one. She struck out 13 in five innings, did not allow a walk and gave up just one hit to improve to 8-0 on the year. Kim Brasil (Mississauga, Ontario) led the offensive attack, finishing with three hits and four RBIs.
