The USSSA Pride loaded the bases in the first inning as Kelly Kretchman lead off the inning with a walk. Rookie Kristen Schnake then would follow with a single to right center, and Oli Keohohou would walk. Racers starter Brittany Weil (2-2) would walk two runs in during the first inning to give the Pride a 2-0 advantage.
In the 4th inning the Racers would get both runs back. With one out US Olympian Crystl Bustos would hit her 6th homerun of the season to right center field to cut the lead in half. Jamie Juarez would follow with a homerun over the left field fence to tie the game at two.

Kretschman’s RBI single to center would give the Pride their second lead of the night. The Pride would score 3 runs in the inning to take a 5 to 2 lead.
The Racers would lead off the 5th inning with Samantha Ricketts single to right field , but great defense by 2nd basemen Courtney Bures would lead to a double play to end the threat.
After the Pride added one more run in the bottom of the 5th inning the Racers would have a great opportunity to cut into USSSA’s lead in the 6th. Jackie Pasquerella would lead off the inning with a single, and a intentional walk to Bustos would place two on with one out.
