Softball upsets UCLA for second consecutive year before falling in next games

It was a bittersweet weekend for the Cardinal softball team (32-15, 8-10 Pac-12) in their last home series of the season. Stanford upset No. 2 UCLA (45-3, 19-2 Pac-12) on Friday but then fell to the Bruins on Saturday and Sunday. While losing the series may have been disappointing, few in the nation were expecting the Cardinal to win any of the three games. Friday night’s victory could prove important for postseason seedings.
