The game started with Taylor Smith, USAO’s third batter in the lineup, hitting a three run home run to left field. Kaylin Taylor and Dani Warren scored on the play.
Smith went on to go 3-for-3 with two runs and five RBIs in the game. Taylor went 2-for-3 with two runs while Warren also notched two runs/
