Arizona softball’s aces finally get to rest in rout of Southern Illinois-Edwardsville

Alyssa Denham and Mariah Lopez are both on pace to set season-highs in innings pitched, and so far their arms are holding up well.

“All the hard work that we did in the fall, that’s why we did it, so that we can do what we’re doing right now,” Denham said.

Head coach Mike Candrea is worried about overusing them, knowing they will be needed for what they hope will be a long postseason run, but Arizona’s offense has given him no choice but to keep sending his aces to the circle.
