April 6, 2007
The Sun Devils found themselves in a tight spot right off the bat in the first as the `Cats loaded the bases with no outs before a 5-2-3 double play and a line out ended the inning for
Taryne Mowatt pitched an amazing game as well for the `Cats as she had a perfect game through six innings before a throwing error put Rhiannon Baca on second. Mowatt ended with a no-hitter with 11 K's in 23 batters faced.
The deciding play came in the bottom of the seventh as with two `Cats on base, one by an Sun Devil error on a dropped pop up, as shortstop Kristie Fox lined one to left on the first pitch she saw which saw pinch runner Jill Malina sneak in just under the tag to end the deadlock and the game.
The Sun Devils will hit the diamond again tomorrow night as they take on the No. 5 `Cats again. The game is set to start at 7:05 p.m. and will be televised nationally on ESPN2.
