Day Three Wrapup From Softball World Cup
Huskies provided some big highlights at the KFC World Cup of Softball in Saturday's action.
While there wasn't much to report from a UW standpoint in games one and two, game three had more than it's share.
In the day's first game, Team USA beat the USA Futures team 1-0, though none of the three current or former Huskies that might have played in that game saw action.
In the second game of the day, the U.S. improved to 4-0 in the tournament with an 8-0 victory over Japan. Former Dawg Ashley Charters started at second base, but went 0-for-3.
In the day's third game, Canada beat the USA Futures team, 5-4, for the first Canadian victory of the weekend. Huskies played a large role on both sides. The Canadians trailed 4-0 before scoring two in the sixth and three in the seventh.
Jenn Salling led the winning side by going 3-for-3 as the Canadian starting shortstop. Incoming U-Dub freshman Victoria Hayward saw time as a pinch runner. Both Niki Williams and Shawna Wright started for the USA Futures team. Wright went 2-for-3 with the game's only home run and two RBI while Williams started in right field.
There's still plenty more action from Oklahoma City at the World Cup. Sunday, there are four games scheduled. In order: Japan vs. USA Futures; USA vs. Canada; USA vs. USA Futures; Canada vs. Japan. The USA-Canada game will air live on ESPN2 and espn3.com at 2:00 p.m. PT, and you can watch the other three on the internet by going here (click on the schedule top midway down the page).
