A’s 7 Oriles 6
Both teams struck early with both scoring 1 run in the first, then both starting pitchers, Evan Hughes of the A's and Bruce Sandham of the Orioles, settled in and recorded 16 strike-outs between them up until the 5th inning.
In the 5th, the hitters took over, by the end of the 5th the score was 4 - 4. The Orioles scored 2 more in the top half of the 6th with the A's scoring just 1 in the bottom half to make the score 6-5.
With the bottom of the 7th looming and the home team A's trailing by 1, they knew they needed to get it together and quick. With 3 singles and the bases loaded it was all up to the Orioles fielders and the A's Kayla Ming who had struck out in two previous at bats. Ming was swinging off the first pitch off Orioles pitcher Brandon Ray and found the hole on the left side of the infield between short and third for a 2-run RBI single to win the game for the A's
