TUCSON, AZ – Returning to action for the start of the Hillenbrand Invitational, No. 16 Arizona Softball (12-5) walloped visiting Weber State by an 8-0 final.
Returning to Hillenbrand Stadium for the start of the Hillenbrand Invitational, No. 16 Arizona Softball was back in action as the Wildcats looked to continue their winning ways.
This time turning to their ace Devyn Netz who got the start on the bump for the Cats, the junior hurler looked dominant as she took on the visiting Wildcats.
Pitching the complete-game shutout, Netz was impressive from start to finish as she pitched six spectacular innings, surrendering just four hits as she held Weber State scoreless while striking out eight batters as she picked up the win to improve to 6-4 on the season!
Arizona’s bats were just as dominant as they came alive early in this one, plating eight runs on 10 hits as several Wildcats got in on the offensive action to come away with the dominant, 8-0 win!
Scoring early and often, big second and third innings by Arizona Softball helped pace the Wildcats to the dominant victory over Weber State.
Arizona got things going early in this one when the Wildcats broke the scoreless tie in the second inning after a few, well-timed hits made it 3-0 in favor of the Cats.
In the ensuing inning, Arizona found its offensive rhythm again, this time taking advantage of a few key mistakes made by Weber State to plate three more runs and make it 6-0, Arizona!
Still not done, the Wildcats would tack on two more runs, thanks in large part to solo home runs from Dakota Kennedy and Carlie Scupin in the fifth and sixth inning respectively to make it 8-0 in favor of the Cats.
Luckily, Arizona closed the door on any and every Weber State rally as the Wildcats came away with the eventual, 8-0 win!
Where does Arizona Softball go from here?
With the win, Arizona improves to 12-5 on the year and is in action currently against Texas A&M-Commerce. They will then follow that game up with a matchup against Nebraska on Saturday afternoon, followed by Texas A&M-Commerce again before closing out the Tournament action against CSUN.
