The home team rallied in the bottom half of the fifth to put up four runs and take a (5-2) lead. Anne Carter “AC” Harding pitched a complete game with 9 strikeouts and no walks. AC Harding said, “I got in the weight room this past off season, so I think I’ve increased my pitch speed since I began as a freshman. My best pitch today was the screwball. Along with catcher Zoe Sanborn, they decide what pitch and where to throw it. I like to pitch because I have more control of the game.”
