Three more hits came as part of the 11-run outburst in the second, those from Kenzie Alm, Young again and Minda McComas. Young finished 2-for-2 with three RBI and three runs scored.

Hayford pitched two hitless innings and struck out three, with McComas striking out two in her one inning on the mound.
