Apr 9, 2021
Pac-12 Networks' Jordan Watkins and Jenna Becerra take a closer look at California softball's 3-2 triumph over Utah on Friday afternoon in Berkeley. The Golden Bears found themselves in a hole, down 2-0 halfway through the fifth inning. But a pair of home runs from Makena Smith and Alexis Bishop gave Cal a late lead that it wouldn't relinquish. After Chloe Romero pitched 4.1 innings of 2-run ball, Haylei Archer came in relief to throw 2.1 shutout innings and earn her seventh win of the season. The Utes came up short despite a complete game effort from Mariah Lopez who allowed three earned run and fell to 4-9 on the season.
