Former Arizona Wildcats ace Taylor McQuillin picked up her first NPF win Friday, tossing a complete game in the Cleveland Comets’ 4-2 victory over the first-place Canadian Wild.

The left-hander allowed four hits and two walks while striking out seven. McQuillin had a shutout going until the fifth when she surrendered a solo home run to Tucson native and former Wisconsin standout Kelsey Jenkins.

McQuillin, who was still pitching for Arizona a week and a half ago, has made four starts for the Comets, compiling a 3.88 ERA in 21 innings. Friday’s win was the team’s first victory of the season. Cleveland is 1-6.

McQuillin started against former Arizona teammate Danielle O’Toole last week, a matchup that O’Toole and the Chicago Bandits got the better of.

McQuillin will be playing for Team Mexico later this summer, before joining Pima Community College as an assistant pitching coach.
