"Sam, I was pleased, she responded well after struggling more than she has ever struggled to turn around the next day and come right back. I thought her velocity was very good today, probably the best I've seen all season.
"I thought Britt (Vergason) called a great game. Those two definitely responded reall well. Brittany definitely won the chess match from the mental aspect of it, she had the hitters off balance all day. It was probably the best complete game we played this season."
