The bottom of the seventh proved decisive, and despite a strong pitching performance from McKenzie Smith, including retiring the first two Devils 96 batters in the 7th, Devils 96 pitcher Gerrard reached first a single. Shortstop Meg Lee then drove in the winning run with an RBI single after Gerrard reached second on a wild pitch. Lee finished a strong day at the plate with 3 hits, including a triple in the third.
