For the second time this series it was the Pride who got on the scoreboard first with Madison Shipman's RBI single in the first inning to open the scoring. Megan Willis' solo home run in the second extended the Pride lead to 2 runs.

Back-to-back singles by Andrea Duran and Amanda Kamekona in the fourth brought Gionna DiSalvatore to the plate. Her sac fly to center plated Duran for the third and final Pride run of the night.

A pitching change for the Bandits brought Estela Pinon on in relief of Sara Moulton to finish out the game. Pinon shut down the Pride offense allowing just 2 hits with 3 strikeouts.

Tonight's loss was the first of Moulton's professional career. In her three innings of work she gave up 3 runs on 6 hits.

Osterman, who earned her 13th win of the season, gave up 4 hits while recording 11 strikeouts. Kristen Butler, Amber Patton and Megan Wiggins were the only Bandits hitters to record hits against Osterman.

Game three of the series is tomorrow, Saturday, August 2 at the Ballpark at Rosemont.
