Highlassies, Bulldogs split on the diamond

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Navarro tied the game with a run in the top of the fourth. Gaby Martinez singled but was thrown out at second on a fielder's choice by Anika Barbosa. Barbosa then stole her way around to third, and came home to score on a wild pitch.

The Bulldogs sealed the win with a run in the top of the seventh. Makenzie McGallion drew a lead-off walk and was replaced by pinch runner Krissy Johnson. Taylor Goulet followed with a double to the centerfield fence to score Johnson.

Game two was a defensive battle with the Highlassies defeating the Bulldogs 1-0 in eight innings. Vannessa Castro picked up the complete-game win in the circle.

McLennan scored the winning, walk-off run in the bottom of the eighth as Angie Camacho led off with a triple and scored on a single by Svienty.
