Utah walks off #2 Arizona Softball

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - No. 14 Utah walked off with the series finale Saturday, 3-2 over the 2nd ranked Arizona Wildcats at Dumke Family Stadium in Salt Lake City.

Utes freshman Alyssa Barrera provided the winning single in the bottom of the seventh off Cats ace Danielle O'Toole.

O'Toole had eight strikeouts in the loss, the second in a row for UA (41-3, 13-2) after the team won 26 straight.

Utah (28-8, 10-3) moved into second place in the Pac-12 by virtue of their win over the Wildcats and Oregon's loss to Washington.

The Wildcats play at doubleheader in Las Cruces against New Mexico State on Tuesday before returning home for a critical weekend series against the Ducks.
