Maddison Kelley put on a softball clinic in the win with triples in the first and sixth innings and singles in the third and fourth innings as the teams got the game in between rain showers May 3. Kelley’s first inning triple scored two runs and the Rockets then fell behind when the Saints scored four runs in the fourth inning but rallied to earn the win. Baker went the distance for the winners, allowing six runs over seven innings, and struck out six batters. The Rockets pounded out 13 hits in the contest.

Baker picked up the win. She went three innings, gave up two hits and struck out seven. Kelley came out of the bullpen to pitch the final two innings.
