Baker then broke the game open with six runs in the fourth.

Smith was hit by a pitch and later scored on a single from Danielle Freese.

One out later, Tasha Nelson walked. Another out later Stephens drove a two-run single up the middle. Then, after McCauley walked, Darion Grove scored Stephens with a double. Stephanie Shepherd followed with a two-run single.

McCauley and Sierra Howerton combined to pitch a four-hitter.
