DePauw jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the second game, scoring one run in the first, and added five more in the second after six-consecutive hits in a two-out rally. Buffalo State could not overcome the early deficit, eventually falling 6-1. Jolene Banach was 2 for 3 with a double. Lauren Mruk (Lancaster/Lancaster) was 1 for 3 with an RBI, and Mooney was 1 for 3 with a run scored. Nicole Sabuda (Orchard Park/Orchard Park) took the loss, allowing eight hits and five earned runs, while striking out four.
