Information from the Arizona media-relations department:

Arizona won the final game Sunday of the Candrea Classic, defeating Northern Colorado 8-0 in six innings behind Dakota Kennedy’s two home runs and the first career homer hit by Emily Schepp.

Arizona (5-0) won all five of its games in the Candrea Classic by mercy rule.

Three Wildcats — Kaiah Altmeyer, Salpointe graduate Logan Cole, and Kennedy — each had two hits and both of Cole’s hits were doubles.

Kennedy and Schepp both drove in two runs.

In the first at-bat of the game for Arizona, Kennedy hit her first home run of the season to get the Wildcats on the board.

Altmeyer then drove in Olivia DiNardo with an RBI double.

In the third, Kennedy led off the inning with another solo home run to give Arizona a three-run lead.

The Wildcats scored three runs in the fourth to extend their lead to 6-0.

Schepp hit a two-run homer and Cole stole home for the third run of the inning.

Cole hit her second double of the game to score Altmeyer in the fifth.

Blaise Biringer, a Cienega grad, walked off the game with an RBI double in the sixth.

In the circle, Mountain View alum Aissa Silva picked up the win to improve to 3-0 this season.

She pitched the final 1.1 innings and retired the four batter she faced.

Miranda Stoddard got the start and pitched two innings, allowing just one hit.

Ali Blanchard was the first relief pitcher, striking out one batter and allowing only one hit.

Brooke Mannon entered in the fifth to face three batters before Silva entered the circle.

Up next: The Wildcats will host the Bear Down Fiesta Thursday through Sunday. Arizona will welcome Arkansas, Long Beach State, and Omaha for the tournament.
