Softball Playoff Video: Cal vs. Iona

It was a good win for the Bears last night against the Iona Gaels. The Bears won 8-0 in five innings, via the "mercy rule," by scoring 5 runs in the bottom of the fifth. Because of the lack of TV coverage, I wanted to share my video from the game. Unfortunately, taking video at softball games is a bit, shall we say, hit-and-miss. Unless you want to spend the entire game watching through a viewfinder, you never know when to have the camera on. As a result, I missed Breana Kostreba's big two-run homer in the first. But I did get some of the fifth inning action, including Frani Echavarria's RBI single, which drove in the Bears' eighth run and ended the game.

Let's start with some pregame warm-ups:

And here are the pre-game introductions of the teams:

A little first inning action, with Jolene Henderson on the mound:

The Bears batting in the bottom of the first. Although this ends mid-at-bat, rest assured that Valerie Arioto did walk.

And this is from the five-run fifth inning. Breana Kostreba bats with the bases loaded:

And the game ends with a bases loaded single by Frani Echavarria (and yes, it was ruled a hit) that drove in the Bears' eighth run, giving them an 8-0 mercy rule win in the bottom of the fifth.

One win down, a whole bunch more to go!

GO BEARS!
