Oct. 12, 2008
TUCSON -- Arizona outscored its opponents by a combined score of 19-0 and received stellar pitching from both aces as the Cats once again swept the competition on the final day of the Arizona Fall Classic on Sunday evening.
Cypress vs. Arizona
The Cats scored at least two runs in every inning, and scattered 12 hits off of Cypress pitching to win by a margin of 13-0 in five innings in Game 12 of the Arizona Fall Classic.
Nine Cats tallied an RBI in the contest, and Lindsey Sisk pitched five innings of one-hit, shutout ball.
Lini Koria hit another Fall Ball home run, a second-inning two-run shot, to widen the margin to 6-0 after two.
Pima vs. Arizona
Arizona scored four first inning runs, then struggled to find offense until a walk-off double by Lini Koria ended the final game of the Arizona Fall Classic with an 8-0 five-inning victory over Pima Community College.
Sam Banister hit a first-inning grand slam to give the Cats their only runs until the sixth.
Sarah Akamine held the Aztec attack at bay, pitching all six of the shutout victory.
In the UA sixth, Arredondo and Lastrapes and Lauren Schutzler each knocked in a run, and Koria's walk-off double plated Lastrapes to cap the scoring and secure the run-rule victory.
Notes: The Cats finished the Arizona Fall Classic with 65 total runs scored in 28 innings, equaling five games.
Up Next: Arizona will hold its Alumni Game on Oct. 25 at 12 p.m. at Hillenbrand Stadium.
