SEATTLE, WA -

Facing two separate three-run deficits, Washington scored eight of the game's final nine runs to earn an 11-7 victory over Arizona softball to take game one of the series 11-7 on a walkoff Hooch Fagaly grand slam.

Seven of Washington's 11 runs were scored by players who did not earn their way aboard. Six of 10 UA pitcher walks scored while an error led to run in the fifth. Additionally, Washington (29-12, 9-8 Pac-12) scored a run after an illegal pitch extended the first inning.

Arizona (39-10, 12-7 Pac-12) took a three-run lead in the first and, after Washington chipped away to tie the game, scored three runs in the fourth to take another three-run lead. Washington would score eight runs on just three hits the rest of the way to win the game.

Hallie Wilson went 3-for-4 at the plate including a game-tying solo homer in the top of the sixth inning. Kellie Fox was 2-for-2 with an RBI while Chelsea Goodacre hit her 21st homer of the year to tie the NCAA lead.

Starter Estela Piñon allowed six runs, five earned, on six hits with a trio of walks and strikeouts in 4.1 innings. She was relieved by Kenzie Fowler (8-5) who walked seven of the 15 batters she faced and gave up five runs on two hits. The senior struck out three in her two innings of relief.

Arizona and Washington meet in game two of the series Saturday at 7:00 p.m. PDT on the Pac-12 Network.
