The Rams would go scoreless the next two innings while the Minutewomen added another two runs, the latter being a walk-off RBI by Amy Smith ending game 1, 9-8. Day two and subsequent games three and four had not only similar storylines but also outcomes. For game two, Rhode Island got things started in the top of the second, scoring a single run, but UMass would return the favor its next at-bat.
Runs were easy to come by during Sunday’s series finale between the Rams and the Sun Devils. The teams tallied a combined 27 runs on 29 hits, but it was Arizona State (25-14) who came out as the slim 14-13 victors over Rhode Island (17-19-1). For the first third of the game, it was a back-and-forth affair.
