Cagle does it again! Trailing 2-1 and down to their final out in the 7th, the National Player of the Year front-runner hit a 3-run HR to put the Tigers up 4-2. It was her 15th of the season. How nice it would have been for her to have had the same opportunity for a walk-off HR against FSU last Friday night, but Clark was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double to deny Cagle the chance. Cagle also came in from the pen to end the 6th inning. She gave up a leadoff HR in the 7th to make it 4-3 but was able to close the books on the Gamecocks. Millie Thompson started the game in the circle but did not have her stuff, giving up 2 runs with 2 outs in the 1st. After giving up a leadoff single in the 2nd, Rittman brought McCubbin in from the pen, and she shut down the Gamecocks until Cagle replaced her in the 6th.
Boy, that would have been a tough loss to swallow after being swept at home by FSU. The Tigers remain a perfect 5-0 all-time against their rivals, and they will stay on the road to play at NC State this weekend.
