“The girls bounced back after our loss to Greenon (on Monday),” said BL head coach Amanda Davis. “Defensively, we have had strong performances the past two nights. The difference in this game was that we executed on offense. We took extra bases when we could and scored six runs on nine hits.”
After two scoreless innings, Ben Logan drove in two runs in the third inning for a 2-0 lead. The Raiders added two runs in the fifth inning and two runs in the sixth inning to lock up the win.
Tahlsa Bowshier led the Raiders at the plate. She went 2-3 with a triple and an RBI.
