Cal Rallies To Beat LSU at WCWS
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – Number one overall seed California overcame an early 2-0 deficit to top LSU, 5-3, in the game two of the 2012 Women’s College World Series on Thursday in Oklahoma City.
LSU (39-24) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second on a two-RBI single from catcher Morgan Russell. However, California (57-5) would battle back and tie the score with the help of Frani Echavarria, who hit a RBI single in the third and sacrifice fly in the fifth.
LSU attempted a comeback of its own in the top of the seventh that began with a leadoff single from Cassie Trosclair. Trosclair would cross the plate two batters later off of a double from Ashley Langoni, putting the tying run at the plate. However, California slammed the door on any comeback in the very next at bat when Juliana Santos grounded out to end the game.
After the game, California head coach Diane Ninemire was happy with her team’s performance in the opener.
