Chicago Bandits’ pitcher Eileen Canney (1-2) came out in the circle today with unfinished business. The last time she faced off with the Racers, she started and had a great game, giving up just one run and three hits in six innings.

The Bandits would go on to lose the game in extra innings after Canney was pulled.

Today, was a different story with the Bandits (14-8) coming out on top 8-0. Canney would surrender just four hits in seven innings of work. The Racers (12-10) would not put more than two runners on the bases for the game—both hits coming in the sixth inning off two singles from Jessica Vallis and Crystl Bustos.

Bustos’ hit struck Canney straight in the knee, but the tenacious pitcher would tough it out to finish the game.

The Bandits bats were out and cracking again today as they recorded 12 hits and handed Racers’ pitcher Lisa Norris (8-1) her first loss of the season.

Bandits’ centerfielder Emily Friedman was especially active today, going  3 for 4 at the plate with a home run in the second and a single and RBI double. Angela Findlay was right behind her, adding two more RBI to her record, as well as a double and solo home run.

After Friedman’s homer in the second, the Bandits continued to dominate offensively, plating three runners with an error and Friedman’s double to left field.

The Bandits ended with a bang in the sixth inning, racking up  five consecutive hits, three singles and two doubles to hammer the nail into the coffin for the Racers and end the game with a final score of 8-0.

Today’s win secures the series for Bandits at 3-1, a far different cry from the other two series against Akron, which the Bandits lost 2-1 and 3-1 respectively. It also puts the Bandits in first place in the league at a 14-8 record.

The Bandits will be heading to Nashville for a five game series against the Tennessee Diamonds beginning on Wednesday, July 14.
