SB: Ducks Sweep #17 Arizona, Extend Winning Streak to 11

The Ducks blanked the Arizona Wildcats for the third time in a row this series. It marks the first time the Ducks have swept a conference opponent through three consecutive shutouts since the Pac-12 Conference moved away from the home-and-home series and switched to the three-game series. Koral Costa sat on the bench with a stiff neck, yet the Ducks offense managed to outscore the Wildcats 17-0 in this series. Janelle Lindvall broke the career RBI record for the Ducks and is just two home runs away from the all-time record. Meanwhile, Cheridan Hawkins earned her 32nd career shutout (school record) and tied the school record for wins (100). Accolades aside, the Ducks look to continue their dominant season as they host a doubleheader with Utah Valley on Tuesday.
