The Red Team had loaded the bases on a walk, an error and a base hit by Natalie Schilling [2] to give them their first scoring chance on the contest in the bottom of the third inning, with two outs.

Morgan Rackel [3] would break the scoreless deadlock with single through the left side of the infield to score Katelyn Smith [4] with the games first run and bringing up Mattson.

Mattson would fall behind early in the count but blasted a 1-2 pitch off the scoreboard in left-center field for a grand slam home run to extend the Red Team’s lead to 5-0.

That would be all the runs that the Red Team would need, as Morgan Rackel [3] and Kelly Mardones [5] combined to throw a four hitter, with the Black Team’s only run coming in the top of the sixth inning coming on a solo home run by Danielle Liermann [6].

Kelsey Gross [7] would also pick up two hits for the Black Team, while striking out eight in her complete-game pitching effort, with Katie Keen [8] recording the other hit in the loss.

The two teams will play the deciding game of their World Series Thursday, 4:00pm, at Maynard Stadium-Cheryl Holt Field.
