There were no hits by either team through the first four innings, but Hannah Howell (SO, Citrus Heights, CA) led off the fourth with a single to left. Jorgenson immediately followed with a bomb over the left field fence and Fisher went yard one batter later to make it 3-0. Chanele Dresser (JR, Norwalk, CA) singled with one out in the fifth and after a walk, Jorgenson made it 6-0 with a shot over the right field fence. Tennessee Wesleyan got one run off Susana Gurney (SO, Cypress, CA) in the seventh inning.
In game two, Stevie Goldstein (JR, Garden Grove, CA) got the start for the Eagles, going six innings allowing just two hits to improve to 2-0 in two starts. BethAnn McCann (FR, Anaheim, CA) pitched the final inning in one-two-three order. Howell had a double and Jorgenson stayed hot with two double baggers. Megan Feuerstein (SO, Huntington Beach, CA) hit her first homer of the year to open up the game in the fourth.
An error opened the game for Tennessee Wesleyan and Jorgenson drove home the run with a double. Jasmin Dresser (SO, Pico Rivera, CA) singled two runs home to make it 3-0 early. Dresser singled with one out in the fourth and another runner reached on an error. Feuerstein hit a three-run bomb to put the game out of reach.
