In the top of the first after the Mustangs Pitcher Brittany Prock struck out the first batter.  The Scots number two hitter drove the ball in the left center gap for a double, however she tried to stretch it to a triple and was gunned out at third.  This play set the tone for the Mustangs defense for most of the game.

In the bottom of the first, Julie Davis led off the Mustang inning with a triple and scored on Nancy Liu’s safety squeeze.

In the third Davis stepped to the plate with one out and showed why she was the De Anza divisions Most Valuable Player as she hit a homerun to right. From that moment on both pitcher just kept mowing down batter after batter until the seventh.
