Cal softball sweeps NCAA regional to reach World Series  

FRESNO – With senior Jocelyn Forest throwing her fourth complete game in as many days, the Cal softball team advanced to its fourth consecutive Women’s College World Series with a 1-0 shutout of Cal State Fullerton in an NCAA Regional final Sunday afternoon.  

Forest, who was voted the regional’s Most Outstanding Player, allowed just three runs in her four starts. Sunday against CSUF (53-13), she tossed a four-hitter and retired the final 12 Titan batters of the game.  

Cal scored the game’s only run in the top of the third inning on a bases-loaded infield single by Veronica Nelson. 

With the win, Cal earned the No. 4 seed in the WCWS and will face No. 5 Oklahoma in the first round Thursday at Don E. Porter Stadium in Oklahoma City.
