Softball takes tough series loss in Utah

Faced with the possibility of getting swept by Utah and likely seeing any postseason aspirations disappear into the thin Rocky Mountain air, Stanford softball (26-18, 3-12 Pac-12) staged its second remarkable comeback in Pac-12 play this year to knock off the Utes (20-20, 5-12 Pac-12) in Saturday’s series finale.

Unfortunately for Stanford (24-14, 1-8 Pac-12), it was not enough against a talented Arizona (32-8, 7-5 Pac-12) team that was buoyed by a vocal home crowd as the Wildcats swept the Cardinal this weekend in Tucson, Ariz.

However, after having spent the last three years around the Stanford softball program, it is clear to me that Erin Ashby takes such versatility to a new level. As a two-year starter for the Cardinal, Ashby has been called upon to play at catcher, second base, first base, hit in the designated player spot and even pitch in the circle.
