Akron, OH – June 29, 2014 - The Akron Racers came out strong, and took a 2-0 lead on the PA Rebellion, but couldn’t hang on in the 3-2 loss.
The Racers took the lead in the third inning, off a double by Jill Barrett to drive in Ashley Thomas. Barrett then came around to score on the RBI single by Charlotte Morgan. 

The Rebellion got on the board in the fourth on a SAC fly from Jenn Salling that drove in Angeline Quiocho to cut the Racers lead in half. The Racers held the 2-1 lead until the sixth inning, when Sarah Prezioso put the Rebellion ahead with a two run home run. 

Angel Bunner got the win for the Rebellion. She allowed 2 runs on six hits and two walks, striking out five in her 6 innings of work. Tatum Edwards got the save for the Rebellion.
 
Racers starter Alison Owen pitched four innings and allowed 1 run on 3 hits and a walk, striking out two. She recorded a no decision, as reliever Lannah Campbell surrendered the Prezioso home run to receive the loss. Campbell threw three innings from the circle, walking three and striking out none, while allowing two Rebellion runs. 
 
The Racers are back in action tomorrow night at 7:05 ET against the Rebellion. For more information about the Akron Racers visit www.akronracers.org or call (330) 376-8188
