Washington's insane softball comeback against McNeese State.

Sunday’s matchup between the Washington Huskies and McNeese State Cowgirls featured one of the most unbelievable comebacks of the softball season.

McNeese State pitcher Ashley Vallejo completely shut down Washington’s offense through six innings of action. Washington went into the seventh inning facing a 6-0 deficit.

Vallejo was kept in the game for the top of the seventh inning, which ultimately ended up being a huge mistake. She allowed the first three batters to reach base, including an RBI double from Jadelyn Allchin that finally got the Huskies on the board.

Things only got worse for Vallejo, who proceeded to allow two more runs to give Washington a realistic shot at a comeback.

She was ultimately pulled out of the game after a three-run double from Washington’s Sami Reynolds with the bases loaded tied the game.

Whitney Tate would come on in relief for McNeese State, and she didn’t fare much better. Washington’s Madison Huskey would lace an RBI double to center field to take the lead.

The Huskies then completed the comeback by shutting down McNeese State in the bottom of the seventh to advance to the Super Regional.

The odds of Washington winning this game at the beginning of the seventh inning were extremely low. Since 2000, teams have a record of 5-902 when trailing by six runs in the NCAA Tournament. None did so with all of their runs came in the final inning.

Many took notice of the historic comeback and praised Washington for its resilience on social media.

Washington’s season was nearly over on Sunday night. Instead, the Huskies will face off against Louisiana in the Super Regionals next weekend.
