Cat Osterman & Jamee Suarez combined to throw a seven-inning perfect game in 9-0 victory

Jennie Finch, Taryne Mowatt, Mackenzie Vandergeest, Chelsie Mesa and Caitlin Lowe returned to Hillenbrand Stadium as the the NPF All-Stars pitched their way to a perfect win.

It was Finch's final game but one; she will play an Arizona alumni game later this month.

Cat Osterman threw five perfect innings before being relieved by Jamee Juarez in the sixth, who tossed two perfect innings of her own. Osterman struck out 11 of the 15 batters she faced. Juarez struck out three of the six she faced.

Arizona pitched freshman Shelby Babcock, who limited the All-Stars to nine runs, eight earned, on nine hits with six strike-outs before 2,623 fans.

The National Pro Fastpitch All-Stars were led by Megan Willis out of Texas, who went 3-for-3 with two home runs, three RBI and four runs scored. The All-Stars also got a home run from Francesca Enea out of Florida in the fifth.  

Finch went 0-for-4 and three of the outs ended innings for the All-Stars. Vandergeest fared a little better in her return, going 2-for-3 with two doubles and three RBI. Mesa was 0-for-3 and a walk. Mowatt was 1-for-2 with two walks and a run scored. Lowe didn't play; she is recovering from ACL surgery.
