Senior Jessica Burlingame started the scoring by scoring from third on a passed ball after leading the game with a triple while senior Kelsey McAllister drove in another run after driving in Brooke Phillips on a fielder’s choice. BSU then extended its lead to 4-0 in the second inning when Phillips was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to score Rochelle Koshalek while McAllister drew a walk in the following at bat.
