Kissimmee, FL - July 20, 2014 - A three-run second and a two-run fifth were all Cat Osterman and the USSSA Florida Pride needed for a 5-0 victory against the Chicago Bandits Sunday night at ESPN Wide World of Sport Complex. Amanda Kamekona’s sacrifice fly to left field in the second inning proved to be the game winner.

After Andrea Duran walked, Kelly Kretschman ripped a double to right center in the bottom of the second. Kamekona then lined a sacrifice fly to left field to score Duran. Two batters later Courtney Ceo laced a triple over the head of the right fielder to score Kretschman and Megan Willis, who had reached on a walk. Ceo ended the day going 1-2 with two RBIs.

In the bottom of the fifth, Natasha Watley advanced to third after her single to right field got passed right fielder Cheyenne Coyle. Four pitches later, Lowe lined a double to left center scoring Watley. Lowe came around to score after a RBI single to right field by GiOnna DiSalvatore. Watley and Kretschman each had two hits on the day while four different the Pride players recorded a RBI.

Osterman (11-0) picked up the victory as she went five innings and struck out 10. The Bandit shortstop Tammy Williams recorded the only hit of the day, a bunt single in the top of the second. Chelsea Thomas and Jordan Taylor each threw a scoreless inning in the sixth and seventh respectively. Andrea Williamson (2-2) suffered the loss after giving up five earned runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings.
