Final Box???????????????????????Arizona Season Cumulative Stats?

BERKELEY , Calif. ?C Trailing 2-0 through five innings, No. 10 Arizona had two late innings to come from behind as they defeated the No. 23 California Golden Bears, 5-2, to leave the Bay Area with a 2-1 record.

?

UA (25-9, 2-1) went scoreless for 11 innings spanning two games before finally tallying in the sixth inning. Sam Banister singled into center, followed by base on balls to Callista Balko. After both moved over courtesy of a Sarah Akamine sacrifice bunt, Kˇ?Lee Arredondo slammed a line-drive double to bring the duo to the plate and tie the game. Another single, error and walk later, Jenae Leles was hit by a pitch to bring across the third run for the Cats. That gave UA a 3-2 lead.

?

Cal (32-12, 1-2) struck first in the opening frame. After a strikeout, Lindsey Sisk walked Erika Racklin who advanced to second and third on a passed ball and wild pitch, respectively. Following another walk, Bernice Masaniai hit a sacrifice fly to deep right to open the scoring. Sisk issued three walks in the first inning.

?

In the bottom of the third, the Bearsˇ? Gina Leomiti smashed a line drive over the right field fence to widen the margin to 2-0.

?

In the Arizona fifth, Duran, who reached on a fielderˇ?s choice, moved to third on Brittany Lastrapesˇ? single to left. After Lastrapes stole second, Schutzler was called out on strikes and UA coach Larry Ray was ejected for arguing the call.

?

Taryne Mowatt (14-7) came in to pitch the bottom half and put the Bears down in order, and earned the victory in relief.

?

The Cats added two runs against Cal reliever Brittany LaRosa in the seventh. Akamine singled in Balko from second, and one hit later, Duranˇ?s single brought home pinch-runner Jessica McNamara to bring in the final tallies.

?

Mowatt found trouble again in the final frame, as she gave up a base hit and a walk to bring Cal slugger Masaniai to the plate with one out. Masaniai drew a walk to load the bases. But Mowatt struck out Sanoe Kekahuna and got a foul pop to end the game.

?

Melissa Drewrey (20-7) took the loss for Cal. She gave up six hits and three earned runs through 6.2 innings. Mowatt struck out five and gave up three hits in three innings.

?

Sisk, pitching in her first Pac-10 game, allowed only one hit and an earned run through four innings, but was taken out of the decision by the UA comeback after Mowatt entered.

?

Arizona will play at the Oregon schools next weekend.
