They hit a fly ball to left fielder Hana Murati, who caught the ball and threw out the potential winning run at home to preserve the tie. In the top of the 8th, Erin Ball, lead off the inning with a bunt single and stole 2nd. Millie Brooks then hit an infield single and Erin Ball scored on an errant throw to third to give us a 3 to 2 lead.
