• Kristina Shank (Mardela Springs, Md./Mardela) drew a one-out walk in the bottom of the inning before Michaela Persinger (Emmitsburg, Md./Catoctin) reached on a one-out infield single. Megan Coyle (Las Vegas, Nev./Bishop Gorman) drove a ball to the gap to score both runners and make it a 4-2 game. Megan Horsey followed with a single to plate Coyle and trim the margin to one.
• A walk to Nicole Farese and two0-out Rachel Julie double pushed the lead to 5-3 in the sixth.
• McDaniel loaded the bases in the sixth and had two on in the seventh but could not score.
• In game two, Jonik, Julie and Taylor all singled to lead off the game, staking the Bullets to a 1-0 lead. Emily Colline then blasted the first pitch she saw over the fence in right-center for a 4-0 lead.
