The Lady Rockets came out strong, taking a 6-0 lead in the first inning, one run in the second and four in the third inning. 

“Masy Baker had yet another solid performance on the mound tonight with nine strikeouts and only giving up one hit in five innings of play,” said Head Coach Jeremy Bleininger. “The Lady Rockets strung together seven hits over the contest. Chloe Stuber and Masy Baker led the team with two hits each. Kelsey Edie, Ellie Bower, and Mylie Galigher each had hits. With no errors defensively the Rockets had a solid night posting their third shutout in five games.”  

The Hornets were unable to get a game going. Kathryn Kidder took the loss walking seven, striking out one, and giving up five hits for 10 runs. Kenna Ball pitched two innings giving up one hit and one run, walking two and striking out one.
