TUCSON -- Arizona blasted five home runs and scattered 14 hits in downing Central Arizona, 10-1, on Saturday evening at Hillenbrand Stadium.

UA started the barrage in the second inning. Lini Koria hit a one-out double, then, after a single, pinch runner Victoria Kemp came home on a double steal attempt to plate Arizona's first run.

The Cats did the most damage in the third, scoring five runs. Brittany Lastrapes, K'Lee Arredondo and Baillie Kirker all homered, with Kirker's hitting the top row of Candrea's Corner in left field.

Arizona's shutout streak was broken in the fifth when Nicole Marquez cranked the full-count offering from Ashley Ralston-Alvarez to right field for a solo shot.

Sarah Akamine made an appearance with two outs in the sixth, relieving Ralston-Alvarez after a six-hit, three-strikeout performance.

Arredondo and Lastrapes both tallied another homer in the late innings as Arizona pulled away for the mercy-rule win.
