Day Two Wrapup From Softball World Cup
Plenty of Huskies in action again at the KFC World Cup of Softball Friday in Oklahoma City as there were three games played, all involving current, former or future Huskies.
In the day's first game, the USA Futures team edged Canada, 5-4. Husky senior-to-be Jenn Salling homered and drove in two runs for the Canadians while incoming freshman Victoria Hayward started in right field. Danielle Lawrie, appearing in relief, suffered the loss on the mound. UW junior Niki Williams scored a run as a pinch runner for the Futures squad.
In the second game of the day, Team USA blanked Japan, 5-0. Former Dawg Ashley Charters started at second base for the U.S. She went 0-for-1, but did draw a pair of walks in the victory.
The day ended with Japan getting past Canada, 1-0. Salling went 1-for-3 and Hayward saw action as a pinch runner.
