Region 2 Blue jumped out to an early 3-0 lead after taking advantage of defensive miscues by the Region 5 Blue defense.  Cameron Kaufman led off with an infield single and came around to score after an error on a ground ball off the bat of Ava McKee.  A triple from Julie Gossett allowed McKee to score before a grounder from Maci Smythe plated the third run of the at-bat.

Region 5 Blue responded with four runs in the bottom of the frame to take the lead after producing timely hits with runners in scoring position.  Moriah Polar led off with a single, stole second and came around to score on a fielding error off a Townsen Thomas single to left field.  Sa’Mya Jones followed suit with a line drive single to left to plate Thomas to put Region 5 Blue within one run.

The scoring didn’t stop there as Ava Brown delivered a line drive up the middle for a single, and a fielding error resulted in Jones tying up the game at three runs all.  Maddox McKee then drove in what would be the game-winning run with a single to left field to bring Brown home.

Brown earned the win for Region 5 Blue, pitching three scoreless frames with two strikeouts and only one hit allowed.  Allison Couch and Aubrey Brown also saw time in the circle for Region 5 Blue.  Brown also had a perfect day at the plate, going 2-for-2 for her team with one run scored.
