Vasquez beat out a sacrifice bunt for a hit, but she
came back to strike out the side.
Arizona State got the only run of the game in
the top of the seventh when Rhiannon Baca led off with
a double to left and scored on a two out double by
Kim Zadrozny. It looked like Lawrie might escape
unscathed when she struck out Pac-10 home run leader
Mindy Cowles looking and pinch hitter Jen McCard
swinging, but Zadrozny lined a 2-1 changeup from
Lawrie down the left field line to plate Baca.
