Smearman hit the grand slam in the fourth inning with one out and the Titans plated another run to cut the deficit to 13-6, but the Highland responded with two of their own in the bottom of the frame to make the score 13-6.

Sam Birch hit a triple to lead off the top of the fifth and Olivia Fayne drove her in for her first RBI of the season to close out the scoring for the Orange and Blue.
