The Tigers defeated the Rebels 5-6. Jerene Carlson pitched all seven innings giving up three walks, two strikeouts, 10 hits and five runs. Coach Petermeier said “Jodie Taggart and Jerene threw the best games I have seen each of them throw. They only walked six people between them. Timely hitting of both teams kept the game close.”
