Box Score vs. San Diego State?

Box Score vs. Baylor?

CATHEDRAL CITY , Calif. ?C?Three of Arizonaˇ?s first four hitters hit solo home runs in a 12-0, five-inning victory over No. 10 Baylor on Friday night at the Palm Springs Classic.

?

Just minutes after dropping a 2-1 affair to San Diego State (10-1), in which, the Wildcats (3-4) failed to score an earned run, UAˇ?s bats exploded against the Lady Bears (7-2).

?

Brittany Lastrapes led off the bottom of the first half of the first with her first career home run.??One out later, Sam Banister and Jenae Leles clubbed back-to-back solo home runs.??Stacie Chambers and Laine Roth followed with a pair of singles to put runners on the corners for UA.? Victoria Kemp followed with a bunt, which Baylor unsuccessfully attempted to cut down Chambers at the plate.?

?

Staked to a 4-0, first-inning lead Lindsey Sisk (2-1) never let Baylor off the mat, tossing her second career shutout.? The frosh pitcher allowed five hits, no walks and struck out six Lady Bears.? Baylorˇ?s Jenny Isham (3-1) drew the loss, as she lasted just one-third of an inning after allowing the three home runs.

?

In the second inning, the Banister-Leles combination accounted for the Wildcatsˇ? fifth run of the game.? With two out in the inning, Banister lined a double to right-center field.? After Banisterˇ?s two-bagger, Leles singled to center to plate her classmate.? After a Stacie Chambers walk, Laine Roth got into the act with a three-run homer to right-center.? Rothˇ?s second home run of the year upped UAˇ?s lead to an 8-0 advantage.

?

The Wildcats rallied for three more runs in the third, before tacking one more on for good measure in the fourth.

?

San Diego ?State 2, Arizona 1

Arizona squandered a 13-strikeout effort from Taryne Mowatt (1-3), as the Wildcats left nine runners on base in a 2-1 loss to San Diego State.

?

The Wildcats tallied seven hits to the Aztecsˇ? five, in a contest that buoyed SDSUˇ?s record to 10-1.

?

The Aztecs took advantage of a UA error that led to an unearned run in the top of the second.? Despite having its first two hitters reach in the bottom half of the frame, Arizona failed to capitalize and stranded the runners to maintain the 1-0 deficit early on.

?

The next inning, UA responded with an unearned marker of its own.? Adrienne Acton reached second base when SDSU first baseman Dani Sidoti failed to receive a throw from a teammate.? Up next, Brittany Lastrapes made the Aztecs pay with a single to center, plating Acton to even the score.

?

SDSU scored the first earned run of the game in the top of the fourth, fueled by the first triple UA has allowed since 2005.? Knudsen laced a one-out triple down the left field line, and with two outs the Aztecsˇ? Sidoti tapped an infield single to first base to score Knudsen for a 2-1 lead.

?

The Wildcats failed to capitalize on a golden opportunity in the fifth inning.? A pair of singles by Lauren Schutzler and Acton, along with a throwing error placed Wildcats on second and third with the top of the order coming up.? SDSUˇ?s Ross worked out of the jam, inducing a pair of groundouts and a strikeout to escape the inning unscathed.

?

UA threatened again in the sixth, but once again left a pair of runners in scoring position.? Stacie Chambers hit a one-out single to left, and one out later Victoria Kemp singled to left, as well.? The pair would advance to second and third, respectively, on SDSU left fielder Tamani Wellsˇ? diving attempt at the ball, yet would not advance any farther as Ross induced an inning-ending groundout.

?

Game Notes:

- ???????? ?San Diego Stateˇ?s Brittany Knudsenˇ?s fourth-inning triple was the first three-bagger Arizona has allowed since April 2, 2005.??UA has played 132 games since then.

- ???????? ?Arizonaˇ?s four home runs against Baylor are the ninth most in a game in program history.

?
