Lawrie, Huskies Too Much for Cats
April 10, 2010
SEATTLE -- No. 1 Washington scored four runs in the second inning and Danielle Lawrie posted double-digit strikeout numbers en route to a 7-0 win over Arizona on Saturday afternoon.
UA could only muster two hits off Lawrie (22-1), who shut down the nation's top-ranked scoring offense for the second consecutive game. The senior from Langley, British Columbia tallied 12 strikeouts, two shy of her mark from yesterday.
With the loss, the Cats dropped to 32-6 overall and 2-3 in league play.
UW (32-3, 4-1 Pac-10) got started early, as Shawna Wright hit a two-run home run following an error in the second. An RBI single by Bailey Stenson and a bases-loaded walk by Lawrie gave the Huskies a 4-0 lead.
Jerrin Fa'asua hit a three-run homer in the sixth off the senior, capping the scoring, while Lawrie sat down the side on strikes in the top of the seventh.
UA will face Washington tomorrow at Noon.
