Box Score

Louisville - Aided by a seven-run first inning, the Louisville Cardinals defeated the 25th-ranked California Golden Bears, 12-2 in five innings, in the second day of the Women 4 Women Softball Invitational on Saturday afternoon.

Cal (23-14) wraps up tournament play tomorrow versus Northwestern at 7:30 a.m. (PST). The Wildcats defeated the Bears earlier this season, 10-1, at the Las Vegas Invitational in February.

Louisville generated seven runs in the bottom of the first inning to build a comfortable margin over Cal. Courtney Moore's two-run home run sparked the Cardinal scoring. Louisville then had a double and three consecutive singles which produced the next four runs.

The Bears clawed back in the third inning with a pair of runs to trim the Cardinal lead to 7-2. After Julie Meyer notched a one-out double, and Morgan Siegel drew a walk, Alex Sutton punched a double to center field to plate both Meyer and Siegel. Cal unfortunately could not generate anymore runs, stranding a pair of runners on base.

The Cardinals boosted their lead to 10-2 with a three-run third inning. Audrey Rendon delivered the clutch hit when her double scored two more runs.

Louisville scored another two runs in the bottom of the fourth and prevented a Cal rally in the fifth to collect the victory.
