Angie Hughes (4-5) worked four solid innings for the victory. She gave up just two hits and three runs (one earned) while striking out five.

Pruett worked three innings giving up three runs on six hits.

Meagan Stover (5-2) was tagged with the loss for the Wolves. Stover worked four innings and allowed seven runs on seven hits.

After Nicole Yancey brought the Wolves back into the contest with a three-run homer in the fifth, the Lady Flames responded with a three spot of their own thanks to a home run by Ana Cosocorrosa deep down the left field line. The senior would add a double in the contest and finished with five RBI and two runs scored.

Dominique Hannah added three hits and drove in a run while Amanda Lynn and Hailey Clark each had two hits. As a team Lee pounded out 12 hits and left eight runners stranded.

Lee fell to West Georgia in the nightcap, 1-10 as the Wolves offense capitalized on seven hits and eight free passes to back a strong showing from starter Megan Roberts.

Nicole Yancey delivered her second home run of the day to jump start the Wolves’ offense in the second inning. Yancey finished game two with a double, home run and five RBI.

Hailey Clark started and worked two innings for the Lady Flames. Clark gave up five runs on five hits, walked two and struck out a batter. Game one winner Angie Hughes came on in relief. Hughes struck out two while breezing through her first inning of work.
