Unearned run brings down #9 Arizona Softball

TUCSON, AZ - Sophomore Reyna Carranco let a ground ball get passed her at second base Wednesday night to score the only run of the game in 8th as visiting Minnesota beat 9th ranked Arizona 1-0 at Hillenbrand Stadium.

Sophomore Alyssa Denham battled in the circle with Minnesota ace Amber Fiser in a pitchers' duel fit for the 1990s.

The two went toe-to-toe for seven innings without allowing a run.

Denham (3-1), left with the eventual winning run on in the 8th after striking out a season-high-tying seven while allowing 
just three Minnesota hits.

Fiser pitched a five-hit complete game with eight strike outs for the Golden Gophers (15-10).

Arizona (21-3) welcomes Utah to start Pac-12 play this Friday-Sunday. First pitch Friday night is 7 p.m.
