HONOLULU -With a three-run fifth inning and one-hitter performance by pitcher Jolene Henderson, the No. 1-ranked California softball team earned a crucial 3-0 win over No. 21 Texas A&M on Wednesday afternoon at Hawaii's Chevron Spring Fling.
The Golden Bears move to 22-0 overall. With the complete-game shutout, Henderson improves to 13-0 overall. Her impressive 11 strikeouts were two shy of her 2012 season high of 13.
"I wasn't hitting well, so I had to help the team out somewhere else," Henderson said of her one-hitter outing in the circle. "The team really came together, making plays and having a we will win mentality."
On Sunday, Henderson was named the Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week. Today the Bears play Texas (19-1) and Hawaii (20-1).
