TUCSON - Sophomore All-American Alicia Hollowell showed why she earned the honor a year ago, coming on in relief and pacing Arizona to a 3-2 victory over Mississippi in the last Friday game of the Pepsi Arizona Softball Classic at Hillenbrand Stadium.

Hollowell struck out 13 batters of the 18 she faced after entering the game in the top of the second. The stint earned her a second victory Friday.

The Rebels took a two-run lead in the top of the first on RBI singles by DeDe Justice and Desiree Layman, but Arizona answered right back with a pair of runs on a sacrifice fly ball by Wendy Allen and a run-scoring single by Mackenzie Vandergeest.

 
 

The Cats had runners in scoring position in the second and fourth innings, but Rebels pitcher Mary Jane Callahan pitched out of both jams. Ole Miss chased UA starter Leslie Wolfe in the second, with runners on second and third, but Alicia Hollowell came on in relief and struck out Brooke Turner to end the threat. Andrea Brahs singled off Hollowell's shin in the third and reached second ona wild pitch, but Mackenzie Vandergeest threw pinch runner Vanessa Gibbs trying to steal third.

Arizona's speed helped it get the winning run in the bottom of the fifth. Freshman center fielder Caitlin Lowe slapped a singled to shortstop -- there was no throw. She stole second and made it to third when the catcher's throw bounced wide at the bag, then scored when Wendy Allen lined a single to left-center.

The tournament continues with a full day of action Saturday. Ole Miss (0-2) will play Nevada Las Vegas (1-1) at 9 a.m., then New Mexico (0-2) at 11 a.m.. Cal State Northridge (2-0) plays UNM at 1 p.m., with Arizona (2-0) facing Northridge at 3 p.m. and UNLV at 5 p.m.
