Consider the innings pitched by the top two pitchers on each team in the collegiate softball championship. Arizona, the national champion, had just two pitchers throwing during the season. One threw 370 innings; the other threw 70 innings. Runner-up Tennessee also used two pitchers. One threw 314 innings, the other threw 111 innings. Arizona's Taryne Mowatt, the only pitcher used in the playoffs, pitched the final eight games in a single week.
