Sullivan doubled the Raiders out put in the top of the 4th with another 4-run rally in the bottom of the 4th. A single, a sacrifice, a Raider error preceeded a triple by Boyer. Boyer was sacrificed it and Sully led 13-5.
Olivia Jordan led off the Raider 5th with a single to try to spark a comeback or at least extend the game. But the next three batters went down in order.
Sully needed a couple runs to pull the plug and they got them. A Raider reliever came on to pitch and it wasn’t the answer. She walked the first batter. The next batter singled. With one out, a fielder’s choice still held Sully from scoring. But with two outs, an error brought a run home, followed by Stewart’s walk-off single, scoring the 10th run and ending the game.
