Rain Suspends Softball Versus Oregon
March 31, 2006
Through the first five innings, the game was dominated by solid defense and pitching, with Desiree Serrano getting the starting nod for the Sun Devils and grabbing five strikeouts in 4.1 innings while allowing only one run. For
ASU scored first in the second inning as a lead-off walk to Rhiannon Baca was brought home after a Duck error and a fielder's choice plated Baca. The lead was short-lived though as the Ducks retaliated in the bottom of the inning after a lead-off double from Beth Boskovich was brought home to tie the score at 1-1 after Courtney Shlee hit a double to the left center wall.
The game remained quiet until the fifth inning, when the Devils brought home another one off a single from Bianca Cruz was advanced around the bases with a sacrifice bunt from Bridgette Caron, and a ground-out from Michelle Smith, placing the runner on third when a Duck passed ball brought home the go-ahead run.
The Ducks stepped up to bat in the fifth when the rain started coming down harder stopping play for good with one out and two on for the Ducks.
Up next, the Sun Devils will take on the #7 Oregon State Beavers tomorrow afternoon at 1 p.m. in
