UCLA pulls away late to beat Arizona softball in first game of Friday doubleheader, clinch Pac-12 title

Hanah Bowen thought she had strike three. The Arizona right-hander pinpointed an offspeed pitch near the bottom of the zone for what would have been a big out in the sixth.

Instead, it was ruled a ball and Rachel Garcia sent the very next pitch over the left-field wall. The two-run homer broke a scoreless tie and opened the floodgates for No. 2 UCLA in a 6-2 win over No. 8 on Friday at Hillenbrand Stadium.

Ball 3 or strike 3? Hanah Bowen didn't get this call and Rachel Garcia hit the go-ahead homer on the very next pitch.
