Top Moments #8: Wilson Softball Quarterfinals Walkoff Win

The most exciting playoff win of the spring came last month when Wilson softball came back to Joe Rodgers for its first quarterfinals at home in more than a decade.

The Bruins battled Troy with the sophomore battery of pitcher Hailey Houston and catcher Natalya Rodriguez, who call their own pitches. Houston went the distance while giving up four hits, two walks and two hit by pitch. Rodriguez came to the plate with two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh, and looped a game-winning single into center field that scored sophomore Sydney Freijanes, and set off the celebration.
