A solo shot by Brittany Cervantes in the third extended the Dawgs lead to three.
After a leadoff base hit from Allexis Bennett, a single up the middle from Cervantes advanced Bennett to third. A sac fly to left from Taylor Edwards scored Bennett making it 4-0.

Edwards hit another sac fly, this time in right field foul territory, to score Bennett from third.
