So, all Cal needs to do is sweep a home double header against the 9th place team in the SEC. No problem, right?

The concern for the Bears is if their pitching is fresh enough to shut down a dangerous Arkansas lineup. Jolene Henderson has pitched 17 and 2/3 innings over the last two days. For whatever it's worth, she looked her best against Boston late last night, striking out 11 Terriers with an unhittable change-up. If she brings the same stuff today Cal will be in great shape:

On how the arm feels after three games: "Golden. With the adrenaline rush I don't feel anything. I'm just excited to go out and play with my team."

What Cal really needs is for the middle of the order to produce after Arkansas inevitably walks Valerie Arioto. It's really hard to get away with intentional walk after intentional walk, but the Razorbacks somehow did it yesterday. It shouldn't be allowed to happen again.

It's time to show everybody why Cal is the #1 in the country. Go Bears!
