Softball looks to bounce back against Pacific

April 23, 2013, 10:09 p.m.

After losing two out of three against No. 14 Washington this past weekend, No. 15 Stanford softball (29-15, 6-9 Pac-12) hopes to turn things around at Pacific (27-22, 12-6 Big West) tonight.

The Cardinal and the Tigers met before in early March at the Louisville Slugger Classic, in which Stanford picked up a 2-0 victory behind the strong pitching performance of senior Teagan Gerhart.

As for the Cardinal’s offense, senior Jenna Rich looks to keep her bat hot after hitting two home runs against Washington. Stanford’s lineup has been struggling as a collective unit, however. The team has scored more than three runs in only two of its last seven games.

The Tigers are paced by a pair of seniors, as Megan Hom and Nikki Armagost lead the team with respective batting averages of .357 and .333.

First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
