Is it softball season now?
Arizona freshman pitcher Kenzie Fowler, who hadn’t pitched in a game in eight days because of a slight knee injury and some rainouts, returned to help the Wildcats beat St. John’s 13-0 in five innings on Thursday.
Left fielder Brittany Lastrapes tied a school record by hitting three home runs. That gives the lead-off hitter a team-high seven on the season.
Fowler moved to 12-0, allowing four hits and one walk while striking out five.
