Lela Byrd struck out 12 batters while just giving up two hits over five innings, the sophomore hurler got into trouble just once loading the bases with two walks and a single. Byrd responded by striking out the next three batters. Offensively the Lady Cyclones used doubles by Lilly McDuffie and Piper Bennett to spark a six run fourth inning to distance themselves from the Lady Longhorns. The inning also saw Sadie Williams return to the field after being shelved for nine months with a knee injury; she responded with a two-run home run over the centerfield wall to make the score 9-0. Emma O’Quinn continued her early season onslaught by going 3-3 in the game, defensively the Lady Cyclones were on point committing no errors.
