The game came down to the Lady Commodores’ last at-bat. Shaelyn Eversole and Pam Sebastian each got aboard, and worked their way into scoring position. Eversole came across on a single by Makayla Hall, while Sebastian tied the score on a Morgan Combs single (2-2).
Combs worked her way to third on a Whitney Back single and Shelby Sheffield fielder’s choice. She then scored on a pass ball on the final out of the game (3-2).
Shelby Sheffield got the win, going the distance with two runs, six hits, four walks and five strikeouts.
