Katie Burkhart and Katie Crabb Lead No. 1 Softball to 15th Conference Win of the Season
May 2, 2008
The Sun Devils started the game off on the right foot as they kept their tradition of strong first innings as they pulled the bases loaded with no outs before freshman Lesley Rogers showing patience at the plate as she pulled the count full before walking to bring a run in after a six-pitch at-bat.
The RBI set a new ASU team single-season record topping the old record of 370. Renee Welty followed suit with a seven-pitch at-bat to pull a walk and another run as ASU took the 2-0 lead after one.
Katie Burkhart locked in defensively as she cruised to a 12 strikeout complete-game shutout with Katie Crabb putting the nail in the coffin offensively as she stepped into the box in the fourth to take a 1-2 pitch clear to left field for a solo shot to put the game at a 3-0 score.
The Sun Devils will travel down to Westwood for the rest of the weekend as they take on the fourth-ranked UCLA Bruins Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
