GAME NOTES

South Florida 3, Villanova 2.  On a day honoring the University of South Florida softball team’s five senior starters, it only seemed fitting those seniors play a deciding factor in the game. Seniors collected four of the Bulls’ six hits, including a game-winning double off the bat of Alexis Nowell as No. 17 USF (44-8 overall, 16-3 Big East) completed the sweep of Villanova with a 3-2 win to finish the regular season with a 29-2 record at home. Tied at two in the bottom of the seventh, Jessica Mouse led off with a singeing liner back up the middle, and moved to second on Laura Fountain’s sacrifice bunt. With two outs and a full count to Nowell, the senior second baseman blasted a double that one-hopped the fence in left-center, bringing home Mouse to send USF into a senior day walk-off celebration.  Sophomore pitcher Sara Nevins pitched the final three innings for the Bulls, allowing just two hits and no earned runs to pick up her 25th win. Sam Greiner started and threw one-plus innings, allowing one run but no hits. Lindsey Richardson pitched three scoreless innings in relief, allowing two hits.

Notre Dame 14, Providence 2.  Half of Notre Dame’s eight runs in the fourth inning of Sunday’s 14-2 win over Providence came from Dani Miller’s second career grand slam at Raymond Field after first doing the deed as a freshman in 2009. Alexa Maldonado added two homers as the Irish needed only five innings to help complete the sweep of the weekend’s three-game BIG EAST Conference softball series with the Friars. The Irish (32-13 overall, 13-3 BIG EAST) have now won a season-best 11 straight games and each of their last eight BIG EAST contests. Saturday’s doubleheader sweep of the Friars (15-34, 6-12) earned the Irish a spot in the 2012 BIG EAST Championship set for May 10-12 at Melissa Cook Stadium.

 Oregon 12, Arizona 6. Saturday.  Game ended too late for Spy which closes at 1am. The No. 15 University of Oregon softball team (34-11, 11-7) guaranteed its second straight series advantage vs. No. 11 Arizona (31-14, 8-9) with its 12-6 win Saturday night at Hillenbrand Stadium.  After Arizona scored the game’s first run in the first inning, the Ducks answered with seven runs in the second inning, then added a run in the fourth, three in the sixth, and another in the seventh. UO junior Jessica Moore (24-8) struck out three, walked four, yielded 10 hits, and five of her six runs allowed were earned. Her 24th win of the season tied her career high and stands third-best all-time for Oregon behind Katie Wiese (42, 1989) and Ani Nyhus (25, 2004). Oregon’s seven-run explosion in the second inning featured a three-run homer by Howard.

 LSU 1, Georgia 0. Brittany Mack provided the Senior Day heroics, but not in the way that the decorated All-American has been accustomed to during her LSU career – she ripped a two-out, RBI double for her first career hit and first career RBI as the No. 23 LSU softball team claimed a 1-0 victory over No. 12 Georgia during Sunday’s regular season home finale at Tiger Park. Prior to the game, Mack gave the ball on Senior Day to her cohort Rachele Fico. The junior right-hander tossed a four-hit shutout and fanned six batters versus two walks to improve to 16-9 on the season. She pounded the strike zone early and often with 17-of-27 first-pitch strikes.  The Tigers (34-18, 15-10 SEC) snapped a seven-game losing streak to Georgia (38-13, 15-10 SEC) and moved back into a fourth-place tie with the Bulldogs in the overall SEC standings. Tammy Wray knocked a leadoff single to open the fifth inning. Pinch runner Alex Boulet advanced to second base on Ashley Applegate’s sacrifice bunt and scooted over to third base on Morgan Russell’s ground out. On the first pitch of the at-bat, Mack crushed the offering towards right centerfield where the ball landed in-front UGA centerfielder Brittany Hubbard’s diving attempt. Boulet crossed the plate for the game’s only run. Georgia placed the tying run on second base during the seventh inning. Fico closed out the game in-style and mowed down Gracie Goulder to secure the 1-0 win.

 Texas 4, Texas A&M 3.  WP Rachel Fox. LP Lauren Ainsely.  S Blaire Luna.  Hoagland hit 2 homers, 3 rbi for the Longhorns who are 39-8/13-6.  The  Aggies turned 3 double plays.  Garza had put TAMU ahead in the 2nd with a solo HR; but the Aggies left the bases loaded.  Ogle led the Texas 3rd, followed by a Hoagland homer, 2-1 Texas.  Dumezich relieved, and gave up homers to Hoagland Brejae. 4-1.  The Aggies closed the gap with two runs in the 6th but Luna came on to save the game.
