Leading the Lynx offense were Ashley Shaw and Kelly Nader with two hits each. Both had a pair of RBIs and both connected for triples.

In the second game, Shanna Goodman picked up the victory in her first outing since joining the squad. Andrews said, "Shanna did a nice job of throwing strikes and letting her defense work for her."
