PENSACOLA, Fla. —
The Blazers teamed up for an offensive onslaught through out the rest of Game 2, scoring runs in four of the next six innings, with the biggest number coming in the top half of the final inning, as the Blazers scored four runs to break out to a 10-2 lead.
The final push for Valdosta State featured a seventh inning in which five Blazers reached safely. The big blow in the frame came from Altman, who lifted a long ball over the right center field wall with two aboard. The home run for the Blazer shortstop was her third of the day and accounted for three of the four runs scored in the half inning.
The Argonauts responded with four runs of their own in the bottom of the seventh, but the deficit proved to be too much to overcome, as the Blazers held on for the four run win.
Maci Fletcher threw a complete game for VSU.
The three-game series continues today with a rubber match scheduled for 2 p.m.
