ROCKFORD – Starting pitcher Cassidy Scoggins (2-0) allowed just one Chicago run for her second straight game en route to a 2-1 Thunder victory over the visiting Bandits.
Savannah Brown had the only hit of the evening for Rockford (3-1), but it drove in two runs to open the scoring in the bottom of the fourth evening. The bases were loaded for the Thunder catcher after Chicago starter Kristina Thorson (0-2) walked two Thunder and hit one Rockford batter. Brown then ended the no-hitter when she floated a ball over third baseman Stacy May’s head just inside the left field line. That allowed Erin Evans and Stephanie Fischer to score for the Thunder.
