With Arizona holding South Carolina to just two runs in a two-game sweep at the College World Series, the most interesting battle in Omaha may have taken place in batting practice.
Two ESPN sideline reporters and former softball stars, Jenn Brown and Jessica Mendoza, took cracks with the squads on Saturday.
Brown, who played at Florida, practiced with the Gamecocks. While she made some solid contact from the left side of the plate, she struggled from the right side. Brown tries to replay her role as a slapper towards the end of the clip, but apparently that's a softball skill.
Mendoza, also a lefty, took some good cuts and looked more comfortable than Brown. After watching the clip below it should come as no surprise that Mendoza was a two-time Olympian and set numerous school records at Stanford.
