Abbott and Folden Drive Bandits To Victory Over Diamonds

By:
Abbott faces former Team for the first time this Season

BOX SCORE

Bandits 3, Diamonds 1

ROSEMONT, Ill
. -- Facing her former team for the first time, Monica Abbott dominated inside the circle once again for the Bandits, leading them to a 3-1 victory over the NPF Diamonds.
 
Chicago didn’t need the rising temperatures to keep its bats hot. The hottest of those bats belonged to Rachel Folden, who drove in all three runs for the Bandits in the game. 
 
Megan Wiggins led off the bottom of the first with a single and advanced on an Amber Patton sacrifice bunt. She was driven in on a Folden double to left-center field. 
 
Folden struck again in the second inning after a walk to Tammy Williams and singles from Danielle Zymkowitz and Amber Patton. The designated player took the second pitch of the at-bat and drove in Williams and Zymkowitz to take a 3-0 lead. 
 
Abbott hit a rough patch in the top of the third inning. She hit Brittany McKinney to lead things off and tossed a wild pitch which advanced the catcher to second. In an odd play, Jami Lobpries bunted one past all the infielders, plating McKinney to cut the lead to 3-1. 
 
Abbott committed an error to put runners on second and third but struck out the next three hitters to work her way out of the jam. 
 
From there a pitcher’s duel broke out as Abbott retired 15 straight to end the game and Megan Gibson would not allow another run after the second frame. 
 
Gibson, who was injured prior to Saturday’s game, went six innings, allowing nine hits, three earned runs, three walks and two strikeouts. Abbott finished with 12 strikeouts, allowing just two hits, one earned run, and one hit batter.

Bandits face Diamonds in the Series Finale tomorrow at 5:00pm CT.   Visit www.chicagobandits.com for more information!
