Cats Fall to Tennessee, 9-0
June 3, 2010
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Ivy Renfroe struck out six in a spotless Women's College World Series debut, Erinn Webb and Jessica Spigner had two-run doubles and Tennessee took advantage of a wild outing by Arizona starter Kenzie Fowler to beat the Wildcats 9-0 Thursday night.
Fowler (34-7) walked eight in two-plus innings marred by eight illegal pitches, including a pair of balks that brought in runs for the 15th-seeded Lady Vols (48-13).
It was the second straight mercy rule defeat at the World Series for eight-time national champion Arizona (48-12), which was eliminated in a 14-0 loss to Alabama last year.
