Cats Rebound to Take Series from Oregon
May 9, 2010
Koria (2-for-2) and Arredondo (3-for-3) both hit a home run in the game, accounting for eight RBI. Arredondo's came in the second inning with UA (42-9, 12-6 Pac-10) already holding a 4-0 lead. Koria's was her fourh grand slam of the season, and it vaulted the Cats to a 9-0 margin.
The sophomore Koria had opened the game's scoring with a single that knocked in Brittany Lastrapes. Kristen Arriola followed that up with an RBI fielder's choice, but two more runs crossed the plate on an errant throw by UO (33-16, 8-10 Pac-10) shortstop Kelsey Chambers.
Three base hits from the top of the order led off the Arizona fourth before Koria blasted her two-out line drive grand slam. The blast was her 15th home run of the season.
Arredondo tacked on two more with a two-RBI single in the fifth.
Kenzie Fowler (31-6) pitched a two-hitter and struck out eight in the contest.
The Ducks went through four pitchers, but Jessica Moore (14-10) was charged with the loss and was relieved with one out in the first.
Arizona returns home to host rival UCLA on Thursday at 7 p.m.
