Thirteenth-ranked Arizona Softball split a pair of one-run games on Friday at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic. Arizona fell to No. 14 LSU 4-3 before downing Northwestern 7-6.

Game 1 – No. 14 LSU 4, No. 13 Arizona 3

The Wildcats' comeback came up short against LSU as the Wildcats' three-run sixth inning was not enough to come back against the four run lead the Wildcats spotted.

Arizona outhit LSU 9-7 in the contest, including a three-hit game from Eva Watson. The Wildcats stranded nine runners in the game.

The Wildcats could not manage anything for the first five innings against LSU pitcher Carley Hoover (3-0). In the sixth, after Hoover retired the first batter, two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Watson, who singled in a run. Hallie Wilson followed with an RBI groundout to make it 4-2. A delayed steal of home by Trish Parks made it 4-3. Arizona moved the tying run into scoring position, but Hoover retired the final four batters of the game to end the Wildcat comeback bid.

Michelle Floyd (3-1) suffered the first loss of her career, going four innings and giving up four runs on six hits. The sophomore struck out four and walked three in the outing. Nancy Bowling pitched the final two innings and allowed just one base runner.

LSU took the lead two batters into the bottom of the first. A.J. Andrews led off the frame with a triple before Bailey Landry singled her home.

In the third, Landry drove in another run before a wild play saw the Tigers take a 3-0 lead. Andrews scored on a sacrifice infield popup by Savannah Jaquish, a play that would go down as a sacrifice fly, 4-2-5 double play.

The Tigers loaded the bases with no one out in the fifth. Arizona went to the bullpen and Bowling got out of the jam with just one run, on a Jaquish sacrifice fly to lead it 4-0.

Game 2 – No. 13 Arizona 7, Northwestern 6

In a wild nightcap, Arizona got the best of Northwestern, using a wild pitch to score the decisive run in the top of the seventh inning in a 7-6 UA victory.

Arizona jumped out to a 5-0 victory and starter Trish Parks was cruising, having struck out a career-high seven strikeouts and not allowing a hit through three innings.

Four innings, three Arizona pitchers and eight total runs later, Arizona defeated Northwestern 7-6.

Northwestern scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to tie the game. The teams traded runs in the sixth before the Cats scored with two out in the top of the seventh to win it.

UA used all four of its pitchers in the contest. Michelle Floyd hurled the final two innings and picked up the victory in the circle to move to 4-1 on the year. Floyd struck out the maximum six in two innings. In all, UA struck out a season-most 14 in the game.

Chelsea Goodacre drove in three to increase her team-leading total to 22. The senior hit a two-run home run, her 50th of her career.

Trish Parks went 3-for-3 at the plate with an RBI. Parks scored on a delayed steal in the top of the seventh to give Arizona the eventual victory.

Katiyana Mauga drove in two runs in the contest.

UA wraps up the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. PST vs. No. 18 Missouri.
