Beasley, a sophomore pitcher / second baseman from Steele Canyon, won five straight games as the Jaguars defeated San Diego Mesa 4-1, Imperial Valley 6-0 and 10-0 and Pasadena City College 9-0 and 17-3. She struck out 27 and allowed one earned run in 25 innings and went 12-for-20 at the plate with six steals.
