GAME 1 – vs. Kansas Blue Sox, Saturday, July 11:

The 18U Lady Express got their weekend off to a great start with an 11-0 victory over the Blue Sox on Saturday.

Helped by five errors on defense and six walks by pitchers for the Blue Sox, the Lady Express still managed to smack out nine hits, including a pair each from Autumn Fitzgeralds, Liv Morgan and Jacie Myers. Myers and Madi Tolle each had a double while Kelcy Bergstrom stole a pair of bases.
