Junior Ruth Munoz hit sending in junior Kylie Velasco in to score. Sophomore Jennifer Morinishi hit a double to right center, sending in Munoz and freshman Allie Beck to home base to score. Senior Kayla Neff hit a home run, scoring and getting two more points from freshman Alexis Lara and Morinishi. The Eagles ultimately won and left no chance for CUI to catch up, winning 6-1.

GAME TWO GAMBLE

The Eagles did not tie the score until the fourth inning when  freshman Abie Nowak hit sending her twin freshman Brie Nowak to second and Lara in to score. In the sixth inning, Velasco hit a triple sending the Nowak twins to home to score. The Eagles made one more run and won game two, 6-4.
