GM1 | Chattanooga 2, Furman 0
A classic pitcher's duel broke out at Frost Stadium between starting pitchers Celie Hudson and Lindsey Bert. The pair kept each other's opponents off the scoreboard up until the final pitch of the game.
 
Chattanooga mustered only four hits over the course of the game while Furman didn't find their first tally in the hit column until the final frame. Hudson lost her no-hit bid with two outs in the top of the seventh on a soft grounder through the right side.
 
Bert and Hudson matched pitch-for-pitch for the majority of the contest. Furman's all-time wins and strikeouts leader retired nine Mocs hitters on strikes while walking only one.
 
It was Aly Walker who provided the late-game heroics for UTC. With two outs in the bottom of the seventh, Emma Sturdivant drew a clutch walk before Walker lifted a pitch to the seats in right-center to walk-off with a 2-0 win.

Walker finished with the lone mulit-hit game after going 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI on her second homerun of the season. Hayleigh Weissenbach and Brook Womack added singles in the victory.

Celie Hudson (10-10) was nothing short of fantastic in the circle. Hudson tossed a complete game and allowed just one single while striking out four in route to her fourth-straight win.
 
GM2 | Furman 7, Chattanooga 4 – SUSPENDED
Furman's Lindsey Bert belted a solo homerun in the top of the first inning to give the Paladins an early 1-0 lead.
 
The Mocs responded with a run of their own in the home half of the first on an Ashley Conner RBI single down the left field line to tie the game at 1-1.
 
Hayleigh Weissenbach put the Mocs ahead, 4-1, in the bottom of the second with a two-out, three-run homerun inside the right field foul pole.
 
Furman rallied for six runs, all with two outs, in the top of the third. The Paladins inning was highlighted by a three-run homerun by Emma Ogburn that put them ahead 7-4.
