In Game 2, Danielle Cornman hit a perfect 3 for 3, driving in a game-high six runs.  Centerfielder Gabrielle Castellini went 2 for 4 with two runs scored and Kisielewski added two more hits and three runs scored in the second part of the doubleheader. Pitcher Rosalie LaGrotta recorded her 19th and 20th wins of the season, becoming the first pitcher in the nation to reach that milestone this season.  LaGrotta added a total of 15 strikeouts in the two games.
