Later in the inning, the Falcons were able to load the bases for Peyton Dolejs who singled up the middle to score two more runners to give the Falcons a 3-0 lead.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the inning, Riley Frizell singled to right field to score two runs and make it a 3-2 Falcons lead. The next batter, Vanessa Miller singled to score another Cardinal to tie the game at three. 

Great pitching and defense held the game at 3-3 to the bottom of the sixth inning. The Cardinals continued to string hits together to take an 8-3 lead. With two runners on Ava Venturelli slugged a three-run home run to put the Cardinals up by eight to force a run-rule victory.  

GAME TWO 

Game two of the day for the Falcons was the “home” game of the season for the Falcons at a neutral site against Furman University. The Falcons fell 5-3 in a very close game that came down to the final out.
