The NY NJ Comets (2-12) jumped out to an early lead, but were unable to hold on and lost 4-2 to the USSSA Pride (9-5) on Friday.
The USSSA Pride took the lead in the fifth inning on an RBI single by GiOnna DiSalvatore.
Ashley Charters reached base three times. She scored one run and had one RBI. She homered in the fifth inning.
The USSSA Pride got the win thanks in large part to Sarah Pauly's dominant, eight-strikeout performance. Pauly allowed two earned runs, eight hits and two walks over seven innings.
Lindsey Richardson was charged with her first loss of the year. She lasted just one-third of an inning, walked one, struck out none, and allowed two runs.
