Bandits take series finale from Canada

ELGIN – With the score tied at one and Mindy Cowles on second, Bandits’ designated player Nicole Trimboli stepped in to bat in the bottom of the sixth against Canada. After two pitches, she cranked a shot over the centerfield fence for a two-run homerun, giving the Bandits a 3-1 lead with only one out in the bottom of the sixth.
 
“It’s a great feeling, its nice to be going out tonight on this kind of note. It was good to turn around and see our hitters turn around and our pitchers do well,” said Trimboli. “They were a great team; they look very different than they have in the past years. Our team needed that; we needed that confidence going into the rest of our season against NPF teams.”  
 
With Jessica Sallinger holding down the mound for the Bandits, they were able to snatch game four of the series from the Canadian Olympic Team, 3-1.
 
It was the bottom of the third when, with Chicago catcher Rachel Folden on first, Bandits’ shortstop Jaime Clark sent a line drive to right field – just past the glove of the first baseman – for an RBI double giving the Bandits a 1-0 lead.
 
The Canadians displayed their Olympic skill in the top of the sixth when Sheena Lawrick laced a single to right, scoring Jennifer Yee to tie the game up at 1-1.
 
The hot sixth inning didn’t stop there for the Bandits as Kristie Fox, the next batter after Trimboli’s blast, launched a double down the left field line. Amanda Freed followed her up with a deep single to left, moving Fox to third. Freed stole second on the very next pitch, with Laura Harms at the plate. 
 
Sallinger (3-2) had the mound in flames as she went seven innings for the complete game victory while sitting down nine batters and only giving up one hit.
