May's Walk-Off Double Lifts Bandits Past Pride, 1-0

By:
AKRON, OhioStacy May and the Chicago Bandits capitalized late against the USSSA Pride for a 1-0 win in the first game of the 2009 NPF Championships at Firestone Stadium.

With a runner on in the bottom of the seventh inning, May delivered some much needed offense for the Bandits with a key double to the gap in right center, scoring pinch runner Aileen Morales from first for the win.
Jennie Finch worked tirelessly in the circle, earning the win for the Bandits with seven strong innings. In a game which saw just three hits surrendered, Finch allowed one base knock and struck out five on the day.
Pride starter Monica Abbott took the loss in 6.1 innings of work despite holding the Bandits to just a pair of hits and registering eight strikeouts.
 
Finch evaded danger in the bottom of the sixth thanks to a stellar defensive play by right fielder Nicole Trimboli. The Pride manufactured their first threat of the day when Amber Jackson crushed a would-be homer to right field but was robbed by Trimboli, who made the diving catch through the breakaway outfield fence to end the threat and inning.
 
The best of three series continues this evening as the Bandits and Pride face off again at 6:00 pm (EST) to determine which team moves on to the NPF Championship finals.
