Danielle Lawrie struck out a season high 18 batters, allowing just three hits and holding No. 13 California scoreless over 10 innings, giving the No. 1 Washington softball team a 1-0 win over the Bears Friday at Levine-Fricke Field. The Huskies (36-4, 8-2) scored the winning run in the top of the 10th with senior Amanda Fleischman plating Shawna Wright when she reached on an error by the Cal third baseman. The Bears then threatened in the bottom of the inning with a leadoff double, but after a sac bunt moved the tying run to third, Lawrie struck out the final two batters to end the game. The 18 Ks moved Lawrie into second place in Pac-10 history with 1,678 career strikeouts, a number which also puts her sixth in NCAA history. She is now just 90 strikeouts shy of the Pac-10 record set by Arizona’s Alicia Hollowell. UW stayed atop the Pac-10 standings with the win over the Golden Bears, who fell to 33-12 overall and 4-6 in conference play. Lawrie improved to 26-2 on the season and fired her nation-leading 15th shutout. She threw 173 pitches in the game, outdueling Cal freshman Jolene Henderson, who allowed no earned runs and eight hits in 10 innings, striking out four. Lawrie struck out six Cal batters at least twice in the game, including fanning a pair of Golden Bears four times each.
