Jolene Henderson struck out a season-high 15 in throwing a two-hitter, and No. 4 Cal beat host Sacramento State 1-0 Saturday in a nonconference softball game in front of a Shea Stadium announced record crowd of 1,212.

Shea has a capacity of 912.

Henderson (Sheldon High School) is Cal's all-time winningest pitcher with 122 victories. The senior walked none and improved to 23-2 this season for the Bears (27-3).

"It's always great to come home," Henderson said.

Caitlin Brooks struck out 10 for the Hornets (16-12). Brooks (9-4) allowed two hits, but one was a fifth-inning home run by Victoria Jones that cleared the left-field wall.
