After Melissa Barlow’s lead-off triple over the centerfielder’s head in the bottom of the first, Lewis followed followed with a hard single. Paaku’u Dewey reached 1st on a strikeout and passed ball on the Immanuel
catcher, Sienna Gutierrez had a 2 run double. Kaylee Simpson singled putting Big Pine up 4-0. That was all Lewis would need, as she faced only 9 batters the first 3 innings.
