The Yellow Jackets built early leads of 4-0 and 6-2 only to be stung by a five-run top of the fifth inning by the Wolverines.

Thomas Jefferson topped the rally with a three-run bottom of the sixth to close out the scoring. Hannah Belt hit a two-run double and Lilly Thompson singled home a run in the decisive frame.
