Hailey Wilson scored easily from first, and Haynie raced home just behind her for a two-run inside-the-park home run that forced the run rule. Haynie finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored.
“About chest-high, right down the gut,” Haynie said of her homer. “I was expecting a change-up, so I planned on having my weight back.
“She (pitched with) inconsistency, so I just set my mind on what pitch I wanted and I waited for it.”
