No word yet on Kenzie Fowler’s return from concussion


There is no timetable for the return of Arizona sophomore pitcher Kenzie Fowler, who suffered a concussion Sunday when she was hit by a foul ball, according to a statement from the university media relations office.

According to the UA, Fowler is undergoing daily medical evaluation. She was taken from the game to a hospital and released Sunday evening.

Fowler is 21-6 with a 1.69 ERA. She has struck out 175 in 153 1/3 innings.

Arizona’s other pitcher is freshman Shelby Babcock, who is 14.2 with a 3.43 ERA. She has pitched 114 1/3 innings.

Arizona begins a three-game series against Arizona State on Thursday at Hillenbrand Stadium at 7 p.m.

The Sun Devils were ranked No. 1 in last week’s USA Today coaches poll. Arizona was No. 8.

Tickets are sold out for the series, although some standing-room only tickets will be available for each game beginning an hour before first pitch.

The Friday night game begins at 7 p.m. Saturday’s game starts at 1 p.m.
