Two of the three North American teams playing in the XII Jr. Women’s Softball World Championship in Clearwater highlighted Monday’s action.
Mexico and Canada locked into a pitcher’s duel early. Grand Canyon’s Brianna Aguilar-Beaucage was perfect for the Canadians through six innings while Arizona State’s Alyssa Loza kept the Mexicans in the game with five scoreless frames.
“I didn’t strike a lot of people out so I couldn’t have done it with my team,” said Aguilar-Beaucage. “I was nervous (before the game) but I was prepared. Yes, it’s worlds but once I was on the field it was just a game.”
