The top seeded Pima Community College softball team rebounded in its second game at Regionals with a 7-4 win over Central Arizona College.

Freshman pitcher Adrianna Garcia (19-5) saved the Aztecs’ season as she held the No. 3 seeded Vaqueras to four runs on eight hits. Pima lost the first game to No. 4 seed Arizona Western College 4-3.

Sophomore catcher Melina Trujillo went 2-3, hit a double and scored two runs, while sophomore outfielder Claudia Nunez hit a double, driving in two RBIs.

Pima returns to action Saturday at 11 a.m. to face the loser of the Arizona Western and No. 2 seed Yavapai College game.

The Aztecs would need to win three games on Saturday to go to Nationals.
