TUCSON - Jenny Gladding pitched a two-hitter and the bottom and top of Arizona's lineup drove in the bulk of the runs in a 10-0 softball victory over Eastern Michigan Wednesday afternoon.
The Cats (18-2) extended their school-record home winning streak to 58 games. Eastern Michigan dropped to 2-6 overall.
UA scored four runs on four hits in the second, with an RBI double by Mackenzie Vandergeest, a run-scoring single by Crystal Farley and a two-run double by leadoff batter Lovie Jung.
EMU brought in its top pitcher, Marcy Mobley, to replace starter Kristen Anderson in the top of the third, but the move didn't stop the Cats. UA scored five more runs, started by a bases-loaded walk by Jackie Coburn, a passed ball, a two-run single by nine-hole hitter Allyson Von Lichtenstein and a run-scoring single by Jung.
UA added an unearned run in the fourth after back-to-back one-out errors by Eastern Michigan.
The Eagles had a single by Kristen Zabalavicius in the second and a single
by Christie Koester in the fourth for their only baserunners against
Gladding, who struck out nine in the five-inning game. Gladding has won her
last five decisions after losing two in Phoenix early this month.
