The win also snapped the school's longest home winning streak which was previously 10-straight games set Feb. 19-March 6 of last year. Tech has now won 11-straight at Rocky Johnson Field.
Mikey Kenney has now had at least one hit in 10-straight games for the Red Raiders. She extended her career-long hit streak with a 3-for-4 day the plate that included a run scored from the leadoff spot.
Stephanie Drewry added a 2-for-3 day at the plate, scoring three runs while adding a RBI off a double in the fourth inning.
Logan Hall was held without a RBI for the first time all weekend. The junior infielder still finished 16 RBIs during the Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic after a 1-for-2 day at the plate that included a run scored and an intentional walk.
Randi Tongate smashed her second home run in the season to start a one-out rally for the Red Raiders. Making her fourth start of the year behind the plate, Tongate finished 2-for-2 at the plate with two RBIs and a run scored.
