Chicago avoids series sweep with 3-1 win over Canada
It certainly looked like the Bandits had something to prove, as they loaded the bases in the bottom of the first inning on three walks, but were unable to push any runners in to score. In the top of the third, however, the Bandits were able to score the first run of the game on and RBI double by Jaime Clark. It took until the top of the sixth inning for Canada to earn its first hit, a run-scoring single by Sheena Lawrick (Calgary, AB) that pushed Jennifer Yee (North Delta, BC) in to score. In the bottom of the inning, Chicago finally put the game away on a two-run homerun by designated player Nicole Trimboli.
Robin Mackin (Newmarket, ON), Lauren Bay Regula (Trail, BC) and Dione Meier (Saskatoon, SK) evenly share the pitching duties for Canada, each pitching two innings in the loss. Mackin struggled a bit with her control by walking four batters, but only allowed one hit and no runs. Bay Regula gave up one run on two hits to go along with two strikeouts, while Meier allowed two runs on four hits.
