SEATTLE -- Danielle Lawrie struck out 14 and an unearned Husky run in the third proved to be difference maker as Arizona dropped a 2-1 decision to top-ranked Washington on Friday.
The senior Lawrie (21-1) accounted for the first 12 UA (32-5) outs, tallying 11 strikeouts and a snagged liner through four innings. She scattered five hits and walked one in the contest.
Her counterpart, Arizona freshman Kenzie Fowler (21-3), gave up one less hit, but walked two and struck out five.
Hooch Fagaly singled home pinch runner Maggie Wagner in the second inning to open the scoring, then Kimi Pohlman scored on a K'Lee Arredondo error in the third to give the Huskies (31-3) a 2-0 lead.
Lawrie posted two more strikeouts in the seventh to close out the win.
Washington improved to 3-1 in conference play, while Arizona dropped to 2-2.
The teams will meet again tomorrow at 4 p.m.
