Cats Sweep the Day at Hillenbrand

Oct. 11, 2008

TUCSON -- Backed by a heated offensive effort on a cool and blustery evening, and a 9 RBI output from Brittany Lastrapes, the Arizona Wildcats scored a 6-0 win over New Mexico, and 22-1 five-inning victory over Central Arizona in Games 7 and 8 of the Arizona Fall Classic on Saturday night.

Arizona scored four first-inning runs, including a Brittany Lastrapes two-run jack, to propel the Wildcats past the Lobos, 6-0.

After a Lauren Schutzler single started off Arizona's at-bats, Lastrapes smoked one to left center to give the Cats an early lead. Sam Banister followed suit with an RBI double, and a sacrifice fly by Laine Roth gave the Cats a four-spot headed into the second.

Arizona scored again in the third when Lini Koria led off with a solo shot to center. K'Lee Arredondo singled in Jill Malina to cap the game's scoring.

Sarah Akamine pitched five innings of effective ball, and was relieved by Jennifer Martinez in the sixth.

A 13-run third inning was more than enough scoring to give the Cats a runaway 22-1 victory in five innings.

The Cats scattered 19 hits off of Central pitching.

Arizona plated four in the first for the second straight game, but scored 13 runs off of 10 hits and three Central errors in the third inning.

Two three-run home runs from Brittany Lastrapes and K'Lee Arredondo provided a majority of the output.

Lastrapes hit a grand slam in the next inning as Arizona run-ruled their second opponent of the tournament.

Lindsey Sisk pitched all five innings of the victory.

Up Next: Arizona will host its final games of Fall Ball, at 3 p.m. against Cypress, and at 5 p.m. against Pima CC.
