WCWS Championship Game 2
June 8, 2010
UCLA Wins the Women’s College World Series 15-9 over Arizona
ESPN video replays show that in a critical 1st inning play, Lastrapes was safe at 2nd.
The videos show that Schutzler clearly had a better line to the ball before the collision with Lastrapes which could have been the third out but instead led to a UCLA run.
Kenzie Fowler was so dehydrated during the Tennessee games, she went to the hospital and had an IV injection between games.
