The loss drops
Mowatt (27-8) took the loss despite giving up two hits in six innings of work. Stanford’s Becky McCullough (9-7) picked up the win, as she gave up two runs on five hits in a complete-game effort.
Having doubled earlier in the game, K’Lee Arredondo lined a ball to right-center field that was deep enough to score Roth for a sacrifice fly. Adrienne Acton then flared a ball to shallow right that fell in, allowing Leles to score from second.
Mowatt took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, Stanford rallied to take the lead on two walks and two singles. The Cardinal started the frame as Maddy Coon drew a walk. Next, Erin Howe traded places with Coon for a fielder’s choice. After Rosey Neill walked and was pinch run for by Michelle Schroeder, Lindsay Key broke up the potential no-no with a single to center to load the bases.
With Tricia Aggabao at the plate, Mowatt skipped the 1-2 delivery wide of the plate for a wild pitch, allowing Howe to score Stanford’s first run of the game. Aggabao then hit a sharp ground ball just fair of first base to plate Schroeder and Key on a two-RBI single.
