Diamonds Rally To Take 3-2 Win Over USSSA

By:

The NPF Diamonds mounted a sixth-inning three-run comeback to capture a 3-2 victory over the USSSA Pride on Thursday night at Foothills Stadium.

 

USSSA got off to quick start for the second night in a row, scoring two runs in the first inning. It looked like NPF starter Danielle Spaulding would make quick work of the Pride in the opening frame, picking up two easy outs before the wheels fell off. Designated hitter Alissa Haber took a walk and left fielder Jessica Mendoza singled before catcher Melissa Roth smacked a double to drive them both in for a 2-0 lead.

 

After four scoreless innings, the Diamonds battled back with a three-spot in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead. Designated hitter Megan Gibson’s RBI-double put the first run on the board for the Diamonds. Right fielder Brianna Hesson tied the game with a sacrifice fly and catcher Brittany McKinney drove in the eventual game-winning run with a base-knock that scored Gibson.

 

The Pride threatened to rally in the top of the seventh, loading the bases for pinch-hitter Charlotte Morgan, but Morgan grounded out to short to end the contest and give the Diamonds the 3-2 win.

 

After giving up two runs in the opening frame, Spaulding clamped down through the final six to pick up the victory. The Pride scattered four hits over the final six frames, while Spaulding fanned seven in the complete-game performance. Sarah Pauly took the loss for USSSA, going the distance and allowing three runs on four hits with four strikeouts through six innings.
