The University of Arizona softball team dropped its third straight game Thursday, losing 2-1 at Oregon in 10 innings.

Lindsey Chambers hit a one-out double to score her twin sister, Kelsey, to give the Ducks (16-32, 3-16) the win.

UA (11-7, 39-14) was in first place in the Pac-10 last week, but has fallen to fourth. The Wildcats trail first-place UCLA by two games.

Sarah Akamine (18-6) went the distance for UA, allowing seven hits and striking out 10.

Oregon’s Sam Skillingstad picked up the win, striking out eight in 10 innings.

UA got its only run on Stacie Chambers’ 27th homer of the year in the fifth to tie the game at 1.

Chambers, Brittany Lastrapes and Lauren Schutzler all had two hits for UA.

The Wildcats play at Oregon State at 3 p.m. Friday. UA will then wrap up its season with a noon game Saturday at OSU.

• Junior catcher Chambers is one of 10 finalists for the national player of the year award.

The award is sponsored by the Amateur Softball Association of America, which is the national governing body of softball.

The three finalists will be announced May 20, while the winner will be announced prior to the start of the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City next month.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
