Miranda Nester went 2-for-4 with an RBI, Jaci Oakley drove in two runs and Alyssah Pontoja notched three hits for the Lady Saints in a 14-hit attack.

Otero used a four-run first inning to take an early lead, but Seward tied the game at four with three runs in the fifth and a single run in the sixth.

The Rattlers answered back and put the game away in the bottom of the sixth with three runs.

 

Game Two

Alyssah Pontoja pitched the nightcap, lasting four innings, giving up 15 hits and 13 runs in a mercy rule game.
