Cal moved one step closer toward the Super Regional by dominating Jacksonville State. Up next, Louisville. For those who missed it, a recap of yesterday's game.

In a game that was a complicated scoring affair to say the least, the No. 7-seeded California softball team came away with a 6-3 win over Jacksonville State in the opening game of the Louisville Regional. The Golden Bears (40-10) scored six runs off 13 hits and six Gamecock errors to begin the 2011 postseason.

Cal tallied one run in the bottom of the second and third to earn the early 2-0 lead and then unleashed with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. JSU worked extremely well with the bases loaded and no outs in the top of the seventh, in which the Gamecocks plated all three of their runs.

Jolene Henderson earned the win, pitching all seven innings and allowing just two earned runs. JSU starter Kristin Graham suffered the loss, lasting 4.1 innings and giving up three earned runs and six hits.

Frani Echavarria paced the Bears with three RBI while Jamia Reid, Britt Vonk and Jace Williams all had two RBI themselves.
