The game remained tied until the last inning when the ‘Cats exploded for six runs.

Junior first basemen Desiree’ Gonzalez did the most damage in the inning, hitting a three run home run that put her in the record books. Gonzalez’s home run made her the all time leader in Chico State history.

First year pitcher Haley Gilham got the win, improving her record to 13-8. Gilham went all seven innings, allowing seven hits, 1 run, no walks, and striking out six.

Game 2

The ‘Cats got some runs early, with Gonzalez hitting a double and two bases loaded walks, the team got a quick 3-0 lead.

In the second, sophomore Tori Zimmerman grounded to second to score Huff.

The Toros would answer back, and come within one on a two run home run in the second inning.

In the third, another bases loaded walk and a 2 RBI single by Zimmerman gave the ‘Cats a 7-3 lead.
