The Hawks returned the favor by posting a 13-8 win over the Raiders in the nightcap.

“I could tell nerves were getting in the way and we were watching a lot of pitches throughout both games,” said CCC head coach Caitlin Simon. “Moving forward, we need to be more aggressive at the plate and not watching as many strikes go by. I am very proud of the adjustments we made in the sixth innings of both games, but we have to be able to adjust quicker.”
