Kelly Barnhill saw her first action at the 2018 NCAA WCWS after getting the start in Florida's 6-5 loss to UCLA. Barnhill breezed through the Bruin lineup through four innings of play before the Bruins put up a five-run fifth inning. Barnhill finished with 13 strikeouts and three hits and one earned run in seven innings of work.
Sis Bates was electric on defense as the Washington Huskies continued their upset streak by defeating the No. 1 seed Oregon Ducks 6-2. Bates, who also went 1-for-3 with one RBI, now has a six-game hitting streak.
Rachel Garcia got the complete-game win as she helped propel the UCLA Bruins to a 6-5 win over the No. 2 seed Florida Gators. Garcia, who had another 15-strikeout performance in the circle, also reached base on a walk in the win.
Kleist got the start in the circle for the Oregon Ducks in their Pac-12 matchup against Washington. Tossing 4.1 innings, Kleist finished the game with four strikeouts and four runs allowed in the loss.
Lilley continued to get on base at the 2018 NCAA WCWS as the senior went 1-for-2 at the plate and walked twice. Scoring once, Lilley and the Ducks await the winner of Georgia vs Florida State to stay alive in the bracket.
Nickles continued her postseason hit-streak in style as the sophomore went 1-for-2 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI. Nickles would blast a solo home run in the sixth inning for the go ahead run for UCLA as the upset Florida 6-5.
