Game notes

Oklahoma 4, Cal Poly 2. Sooner nation drew a deep breath Saturday morning as Oklahoma fell behind 2-0, then rallied for aq 4-2 victory, breaking a four-game losing streak, believed to be the longest in Sooner softball history.  The Mustangs staked Anna Cahn to a 2-0 in the 3rd.  Andersen led off with a single; Westlund reached on a throwing error by OU starter Allee Allen.  Brown singled, Cochiolo drove in a run with a sac fly; Cahn drove in the second run with a sac fly.  Lund reached on an error but was stranded.  Cochiolo was hit on the helmet in the 4th, the last Mustang to reach base safely.  After that hbp, Michelle Gascoigne relieved for OU.  The Sooners took the lead 3-2 in the bottm 3rd.  Martinez beat out an infield hit.  With one out, Williams was hbp.  Then, the Sooners took that deep breath when all-star catcher Jessica Shults went to the ground, a deflected ball apparently hitting her knee.  Gradually, Shults rose off her knees then jacked a three-run homer.    OU scored an insurance run in the 6th.  Nix was hit on the helmet, advanced on an excellent sac bunt to 3rd by McGregor, and scored when Jones’ grounder to 3rd was misplayed.

Georgia 8, Arizona 0 (5).  Georgia was ranked #1 in the NFCA poll, Arizona #1 in the USA Softball poll.  The Wildcats threatened top 1st –bases loaded, two out, but no score — but never made another serious challenge, recording just three hits.  Georgia came out firing.  Fowler hit Schlopy, a dangerous leadoff hitter, got two groundouts to 2nd, then gave up a single to Hesson, and a 3-run homer to Razey.  Shelby Babcock relieved to pitch the next four innings, and did well  until the 3rd when Georgia loaded the bases on two walks and a single by Sandberg.  With twe out, Hubbard drove in the fourth run.  Pauly opened the Bulldog 4th with a triple, and scored onWiggins’ single up the center.  She scored on Goler’s double.  A rundown prevented another run.  Sandberg led the 5th with a double, and scored on Hubbard’s single to center.  Pauly reached on Babcock’s error, and scored on Schlopy’s fielder’s choice.Georgia reached run-rule on Wiggins’ rbi single, the 12th Bulldog hit. 

LSU Goes Long on Fordham..  Anissa Young, Tammy Wray and Ashley Langoni connected for back-to-back-to-back home runs with two outs during the sixth inning to propel the No. 20 LSU softball team to a 6-2 victory over Fordham Saturday at the Big League Dreams Complex.  The Tigers (11-5) blasted all three of the long balls off Fordham hurler Jen Mineau, a 2010 NFCA All-American First-Team selection. Young finished with two home runs and four RBIs. Young opened the scoring with a solo shot to centerfield in the first inning. it marked the 26th time a LSU player has garnered multiple homers in a game.   The Rams (6-7) capitalized on two LSU errors to plate their two runs during the fourth inning.  With LSU trailing a 2-1 in the sixth inning, Jacee Blades worked her way to an eight-pitch walk to snap a run of 13-straight batters retired by Mineau. Two batters later, Simone Heyward cranked a double to right field. Young powered the first pitch she saw over the left centerfield fence to vault the Tigers to a 4-2 lead. Wray and Langoni followed suit with solo blasts of their own for the final margin of 6-2.  Brittany Mack went the distance in the circle and recorded nine strikeouts to improve to 4-1 on the season. She allowed only four hits, three walks and was touched up for a pair of unearned runs.

California 11,  LSU 3.  Cal collected 18 hits sparked by three-run home runs from Jolene Henderson and Jordan Wallace. Henderson went 4-for-5 at the plate with four RBIs and tossed a complete game in the circle. She was joined by Jamia Reid and Britt Vonk, who also posted four-hit efforts from the top of the Cal lineup.  The Golden Bears raced out to a 5-0 advantage in the first three innings. The big blow was the Wallace three-run homer off Rachele Fico during the second inning. Fico fell to 3-4 on the season.  Cassie Trosclair slapped an infield single for LSU’s first hit to open the third inning. Simone Heyward added a walk and Trosclair crossed the plate on a Juliana Santos RBI single down the left field line to make it 3-1. Two batters later, Anissa Young drew a walk to load the bases. On the first pitch of the at-bat, Tammy Wray smashed a two-run double that one hopped over the centerfield fence to pull LSU back to 5-3. The Tigers would leave the potential tying runs in scoring position as Morgan Russell popped up followed by a Tiffany Shaw ground out to end the rally. Cal squeezed across two runs on a walk and a hit batter during the fourth inning. The Golden Bears added four more runs in the seventh inning highlighted by Henderson’s three-run homer for the final margin of 11-3. 

Tennessee Downs UCLA.  (Press release)  Tennessee (14-2) jumped on UCLA (11-3) for seven runs over the first two innings and rode a sterling, complete-game pitching effort by freshman Ellen Renfroe to a commanding 7-1 victory over the defending national champion Bruins.  UT’s 6-0 right hander established a new career-high with 10 strikeouts against the Blue & Gold, topping the mark of nine she set on Friday night during a 7-2 win over Loyola Marymount.  In her fourth complete game of the year, the Jackson, Tenn., native permitted just one run on six hits to the powerful Bruin line-up while walking only one in a 140-pitch effort to improve to 7-1 overall.  In four total appearances at the Cathedral City Classic, Renfroe recorded a 3-0 record with a 1.50 ERA and 26 strikeouts in 18.2 innings of work.  Lady Vol sophomore second baseman Lauren Gibson went 2-for-4 with three RBIs, setting the tone offensively for the Big Orange with a crucial three-run double in the first inning.  Junior first baseman Shelby Burchell (1-for-3, two RBIs) blasted her team-best fifth HR of the year, marking the first big fly allowed by a UCLA pitcher during the 2011 campaign.  Senior center fielder Kelly Grieve tallied her squad-high third triple of the year to go along with an RBI, while junior third baseman Jessica Spigner was 1-for-4 at the plate with an RBI.  Bruins got a rally started with one down in the top of the first.  Right fielder B.B. Bates chopped a ball out in front of the plate for a single and was soon joined on the base paths via a knock to center by second baseman GiOnna DiSalvatore.  Left fielder Andrea Harrison bounced one to Gibson at second that she corralled, attempted and failed to tag the runner going to second before throwing on for the force at first.  With two down and Bruin occupants at second and third, Renfroe displayed the mettle that served her so well from the circle all game by striking out shortstop Kellie Fox to end the threat.  An uncharacteristic five errors helped undo UCLA’s cause all contest long, the first miscue of which helped start a three-run bottom of the first for the Lady Vols.  With one out Grieve bounced a routine ball to short that was misplayed by Fox.  UT sophomore right fielder Kat Dotson and Burchell drew back-to-back walks to load the bases for Gibson.  The Pasadena, Md., native stepped in and ripped a shot the other way just inside the third base bag and down the line for a double that brought home all three runners for a huge 3-0 advantage.  Despite hitting UCLA’s Devon Lindvall with a pitch with one out in the second, Renfroe managed to strikeout a pair of batters as the Bruins went down quietly in the frame.  Tennessee took complete control of the contest in the bottom of the second as UT registered four runs on five hits with the benefit of an error.  Sophomore left fielder Raven Chavanne started the outburst with a base knock back to the circle with one retired.  Bruin pitcher Jessica Hall picked up the ball and threw wide of first as the Lady Vol speedster rolled into scoring position.  Grieve came to the plate and blasted a shot through first baseman Lindvall’s legs before she could even react for a run-scoring triple to make it 4-0.  Burchell upped the lead to a half-dozen by driving a 2-1 offering deep to center for a two-run HR despite the best efforts of center fielder Katie Schroeder, who crashed through the temporary fencing while attempting to make the catch.  The homer was the first allowed by a Bruin pitcher in the early 2011 season.  Gibson kept the attack going with her second two-bagger of the match-up, and then Spigner blooped a base knock to left center that dropped in as Gibson scored for a 7-0 advantage.  UCLA started trying to chip away in the top of the fifth.  With two outs Renfroe struck Schroeder with a pitch and it soon came back to haunt her.  Bates and DiSalvatore delivered back-to-back singles to plate the runner, cutting the Bruin deficit to 7-1.  Harrison walked to load the bases with Fox stepping to the plate facing a big spot that could have gotten the Blue & Gold back into the contest.  Renfroe managed to induce a huge fly out to left as Chavanne raced in to make an inning-ending catch and leave the trio stranded.  A base knock by UCLA catcher Alyssa Tiumalu and a two-out fielding error on the Tennessee infield granted the Bruins another chance to cut into UT’s advantage in the bottom of the sixth.  Renfroe responded again by catching Schroeder looking at strike three to leave two more UCLA runners where they stood.

 Oregon Splits.  Oregon (11-2) got back on the winning track Saturday afternoon with an 8-0, five-inning win over San Jose State (8-5) in its second game at the Libby Matson Tournament.  In the tourney’s opener immediately before, UO fell to Pacific (6-2) by a 4-2 count after the Tigers scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.  Against the Spartans, sophomore pitcher Jessica Moore (5-1) struck out seven, walked one and allowed only one hit – a bloop by BranDee Garcia to center field in the first inning  Moore was also one of five Ducks that hit safely with her 1-for-2 day at the plate.  Junior infielder Kelsey Chambers smacked her team-leading fifth homer of the season, a two-run shot to right center field in the bottom of the fifth, to give UO its sixth regulation-shortened victory of the season via the eight-run rule.  Sophomore outfielder Allie Burger also hit safely twice with singles in the first and third innings, and the latter knocked in her sixth RBI of the season.  Sophomore second baseman Kaylan Howard and freshman infielder Kailee Cuico also reached via hits in UO’s six-run third inning.  Oregon’s other runs in the stanza came via a delayed steal home by freshman catcher Alexa Peterson, a bases-loaded walk to Chambers, a fielder’s choice ground-out by senior Kaitlin Vitek, and a throwing error by the second baseman on a fielder’s choice.  San Jose State starter Jennifer Ames (3-3) struck out one, walked three, gave up five hits, and five of her six runs allowed were earned. She was followed by Janessa Gutierrez (1.2 innings, 0 SO, 0 BB, 0 H, 0 R) and Alex Molina (0.1 innings, 1 H, 0 SO, 0 BB, 2 ER).  In the day’s first game, a 4-2 loss to Pacific, freshman infielder Kailee Cuico put UO, 2-0, in the top of the fourth inning with her second homer of the season – a  two-out, two-run shot to left field.  The Tigers clawed their way back into the game in the bottom of the sixth after an opening double and single. Their first run scored on a passed ball, then after two more walks loaded the bases, a walk tied the score. A double to right center field accounted for the final two runs of the game.  Duck junior Samantha Skillingstad struck out five, walked three, gave up four hits and one unearned run. Junior Mikayla Endicott (2-1) relieved her in the sixth inning, and allowed one hit, two earned runs and one walk. Junior Brittany Rumfelt pitched to one batter afterwards and issued a walk before Skillingstad came back in and faced the game’s final batters.  For Pacific, starter Tori Shepard (2-1) struck out three, walked two, allowed five hits, and her two runs allowed were earned.

Arizona State Defeats Michigan State Twice.  With Mandy Urfer,Katelyn Boyd and Talor Haro all batting over .500 on the day, ASU collected two more
wins Saturday as they topped the Michigan State Spartans twice 10-2 (5) and 5-2.  Hillary Bach and Mackenzie Popescue took wins on the day
moving to 3-0 and 2-1 respectively on the season as the Sun Devils move to 12-1 on the year.

Syracuse which surprised Big East opponents last season continues to impress.  On Friday, Syracuse upset nationally-ranked Hawaii 3-2, after defeating Utah 4-3.  Today, they upset highly rated Fresno State, 4-3.

Washington continues to show why it deserves Top 10 ranking.  On Thursday, the Huskies defeated Texas A&M and Fordham.  Friday, UW pounded Fullerton 14-2 and perennial contender U Mass 9-2.  Today, the Huskies finished the tournament with a 5-0 record, defeating Cal Poly 5-3.
