Softball: Arizona State shuts down comeback

Though it snapped a seven-game losing streak in the middle of last week against San Jose State, the Stanford softball team continued to struggle against Pac-10 competition. Over the weekend, it dropped two of three games to No. 7 Arizona State (39-11, 8-7 Pac-10). The No. 14 Cardinal (32-14, 5-10) has now lost its last three conference series, including sweeps at the hands of Arizona and UCLA.
