The Friars turned a triple play in the second inning after allowing two batters to reach base on a walk and error, respectively. Sophomore Megan Rollings (Marysville, Wash.) started the play by snagging a line drive, allowing the Friars to pick off both Blue Demons for all three outs.

In the bottom of the seventh, Rollings hit a two-run homerun to pull the Friars within one (7-6) after Baldassari was able to reach first on a passed ball after striking out. Sophomore Shanelle Harrell (Irvine, Calif.) would tie the score at seven on a solo shot three batters later to send the game into extra innings.
