STATS OF THE GAME:

  • Game 1

    • Jameston (4-9) and Makaleigh Dooley (13-5) were phenomenal in the circle. Both pitchers went the distance while Jameston allowed one run on seven hits and struck out four for the Blue and White. Dooley tossed a no-hitter striking out five Fighting Knights.

    • The sixth inning was the only one to see a run cross the plate as Tampa scored off of a Maddie Farrell single to left center.

    • Shayle Arenson and Britney Purser reached base on a walk and an error, respectively. Purser also had a stolen base in the contest.

    • Tampa left nine runners on base compared to Lynn's one runner left on. 

  • Game 2

    • Game two was the same low-scoring affair as game one with the lone run being scored in the sixth inning. Tampa scored on a solo homerun off of the bat of Sam Worrell.

    • Saviskas got the nod for Lynn in game two, tossing her second consecutive complete game. She allowed one run on two hits and struck out two Spartans.

    • Dooley started in the circle for Tampa and allowed one hit through three innings. Corynn Miner (4-2) got the win in relief allowing no runs on two hits through the final four innings.

    • Mackenzie Wyatt, Kayla Sheffield and Purser all had base hits for the Blue and White. Sheffield's base knock was a double.

    • Diaz was hit by a pitch twice.
