SAN DIEGO - The seventh-ranked Cal softball team rallied for its third come-from-behind victory in as many games, defeating Massachusetts 3-2 in the Golden Bears' final game at the Campbell/Cartier Tournament hosted by San Diego State.

The Bears (4-0) entered the bottom of the seventh inning trailing 2-0. Cal opened the inning with back-to-back singles from sophomore Katie Vickers and freshman Morgan Siegel. Sophomore Jessica Moore, pinch-running for Vickers, and Siegel both scored two plays later when freshman Carly Winger reached base on a Massachusetts error, tying the game at 2-2.

Cal placed sophomore Erika Racklin as the runner on second base in the bottom of the eighth due to the international tie-breaker rules. Racklin advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by senior Lindsay James. Senior Haley Woods was intentionally walked, putting runners at first and third. Racklin scored her fifth run of the tournament when freshman Gina Leomiti reached base on a fielder's choice.

Senior Kristina Thorson entered the game in the top of the eighth and held the Minutewomen hitless in the inning. Thorson took over for freshman Lauren Frankiewicz and improved to 3-0.

Cal was originally scheduled to face San Diego State Friday night, but the game was postponed until Sunday and later cancelled due to scheduling concerns.

The Bears travel to Las Vegas for the UNLV Tournament, Feb. 17-19. Cal opens tournament play against Illinois on Friday at 11:15 a.m.
