She finished 2 for 4.  Faith Harris was also 2 for 4.  Head coach Janice Bryan mentioned the timely hitting as part of the complete game she felt the team played.  "We got timely hits when we needed it.  We got good, solid defense.  We got good pitching.  We didn't have that one thing missing" (IE: getting hits but not be able to score runners.)
