Final Stats

TEMPE, Ariz. - One day after its near upset of No. 7 Stanford, New Mexico was unable to keep pace with fifth-ranked Arizona, falling 9-1 in five innings this morning in the team's final game at Arizona State's Kajikawa Classic tournament. UNM fell to 0-5 early in its daunting non-conference schedule, but had three narrow losses of two runs or less during this weekend's tournament.

Arizona (5-0) broke open a competitive 3-0 game with six runs in the third inning. However, the Lobos became the first team to score against Arizona this year when senior Kristina Schmallen drove in junior Ryanne Hodgins in the fourth inning on a fielder's choice play. Hodgins had led off the inning with a single and advanced to third on another single by junior Jennifer Deitrich.

The Wildcats opened the season with five straight wins by a combined score of 25-0 at the ASU tournament, including a 1-0 win over fourth-ranked Texas on Saturday night. UNM rookie pitcher Jen Mendenhall, who was outstanding in the Lobos' 3-2 loss to Stanford, fell to 0-2 on the year by allowing nine runs in 2 2/3 innings.

New Mexico returns to tournament play on the road next weekend when it travels to Las Vegas for five more games. Complete stats from today's game are available on www.sundevils.com and will be posted on www.golobos.com on Monday morning.
