Elliott Pitches No. 3 Softball Past Creighton
March 7, 2007
The Sun Devils never looked back as they dug in to add three more runs in the fifth inning with Jessica Mapes and Kaitlin Cochran both hitting singles while a Creighton error to put Jackie Vasquez on loaded the bases for clean-up hitter Bianca Cruz. Cruz didn't disappoint as she smoked a single through the left side to plate Mapes. With the bases still loaded, Caylyn Carlson drew a walk to bring one home before Rhiannon Baca's sac fly to right field brought in another leaving the score at 4-0.
Elliott cruised through the rest of the game tallying a final line of four hits and eight strikeouts on the day, keeping Creighton's offense silent.
