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. After the tough series loss, though, the Card will certainly have a lot of work to do over the final 11 games of this regular season, starting when they welcome the No. 1 Oregon Ducks (40-5, 14-1 Pac-12) to the Farm this coming weekend.

Softball avoids sweep against No. 10 Washington

Although Stanford (25-16, 2-10 Pac-12) was able to win the middle game of its three-game series against No. 10 Washington (24-11, 4-7 Pac-12) this weekend to avoid a sweep, Washington senior pitcher Kaitlin Ingelsby won both of her starts to give Washington the other two wins and deny Stanford its first conference series win of the season in the series finale.

Arizona edges softball to win weekend series

In a wild conclusion to the regular season on Saturday, Arizona (32-24, 9-15 Pac-12) defeated No. 13 Stanford softball (37-19, 13-11 Pac-12) 4-3 in nine innings of play to clinch the series victory. The Wildcats also won 5-3 in Thursday’s contest while the Cardinal came out on top 2-0 on Friday. The victory marked the second straight Pac-12 series taken by the Wildcats, who also defeated No. 5 Arizona State (45-10, 16-8 Pac-12) in the prior series. Stanford had previously swept its last two Pac-12 opponents before losing this series.
