UCLA however, put some additional distance between itself and the Wildcats by scoring four runs on six hits in the sixth inning. In that inning, Wildcat pitcher Tatiana Su’esu’e had a tough go of it, allowing all four of those runs in her single inning of work.
Weber State did manage to put a pair of runners on base due to UCLA fielding errors, but was unable to bring either of them home.
The Wildcats now move to the elimination bracket where they will face Cal State Fullerton with their season on the line on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
