Taylor Pack gives No. 1-ranked UCLA softball team more power

LOS ANGELES — Washington thought it made a smart play walking Rachel Garcia to get to Taylor Pack. The UCLA senior turned it into UW’s worst nightmare. In a scoreless game March 15 in Seattle, Washington pitcher Taran Alvelo, the conference’s leader in wins, intentionally walked Garcia to load the bases with two outs for Pack. Garcia is the reigning national player of the year, as feared a hitter as she is a pitcher. The lesser-known Pack then lined a hard double to center field to clear the bas...
