In her first game back in the circle after almost a year, Lilly pitched a solid game! She threw strikes, forcing Hoover to swing the bat and put the ball in play. Even after a back to back 5 & 7 run inning by Hoover, Lilly kept her confidence high and shut down the 4th inning to secure the 16-12 victory! Lilly is 1-0 on the season!
Devon had an awesome game at first base! She made some great digs on low throws, and twice on throws that pulled her off the bag, she caught the ball and swiped the tag on the runner to still get the out! On offense she contributed to the huge 3rd inning by getting on base, stealing some bases, and scoring a run!
