With the loss the Huskies suffered their second straight shutout loss following a 3-0 setback to second ranked Arizona State on Friday, and dropped to 5-11 in the Pac-10 and 26-20-1. Arizona improved to 9-8, good for at least a third place tie in the Pac-10 and 32-16 overall.
The game began with Arizona loading the
bases in the top of the first on a hit batter and two
walks, but Husky starter Aleah Macon (15-13) struck
out Sam Banister swinging to end the inning.
The Huskies had a chance to get to Mowatt
(20-12) in the bottom of the second when they loaded
the bases on singles by Alicia Blake and Bailey
Stenson and a hit batter, but Mowatt got out of the
inning unscathed by striking out the side.
Mowatt only allowed one more baserunner
the rest of the game when she walked Marnie Koziol
with one out in the bottom of the third, but catcher
Callista Balko threw out Koziol attempting to steal
second, and Mowatt proceeded to retire the final 13
Huskies she faced. She struck out 15 in her fifth
shutout and 25th complete game of the season.
In the loss, Macon went five innings,
allowing three runs, one earned, on six hits and four
walks. She struck out five.
The Wildcats got to Macon for all three
runs in the top of the third. K'Lee Arredondon led off
with a chop single over the head of Dru Hester at
third base, took second on a ground out by Jenae Leles
and scored on a line single to right center field by
Stacie Chambers. Laine Roth walked and Banister
reached to load the bases when Amanda Fleischman
bobbled her grounder to short for an error. Macon
struck out Balko swinging for the second out but Cyndi
Duran lined a single to right to score Chambers and
Roth and put the Wildcats on top 3-0.
Caitlin Noble relieved Macon in the sixth
and pitched two scoreless innings. She struck out
three, including the final two batters she faced.
The Huskies conclude their home season when
they host the Wildcats on Sunday, May 4, at 12:00
Noble, the lone Husky senior, will make her final home
