The fateful second began with a one-out single by senior Cassidy Cotton, followed by a walk to Megan Lynch, and an RBI single by Ally Ockenfels. Trenton took a 2-1 lead with an infield single by freshman Whitley Richman, with the lead bulging to 3-1 a Tosha Wilson RBI hit. A single by McKinley Hurley loaded the bases, and catcher Madi Trump unloaded them with a bases-clearing, three-run double, pushing the advantage to 6-1.

Lexington fought back against Trenton junior right-hander Mallory Hooyman, hitting a two-run homer in the third inning, and adding another run to make the score 6-4 going into the 7th inning. Trenton got some much needed breathing room in the top of the seventh inning, doubling the lead to 8-4 on a two-run double by Ockenfels. Lexington went scoreless in the bottom half, to end the game.

For Trenton, Trump was 2 for 4 with 3 RBI's, Ockenfels 2 for 3 with 3 RBI's, Wilson 2 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored, Hurley 1 for 3 with a run and a stolen base, and Cotton 2 for 3 with two runs scored. Hooyman earned the victory, twirling the first four innings, allowing three earned runs on five hits, and striking out six to improve to 9-3 on the season. Sophomore Daryian Otto earned the save with three innings of one-run relief, giving up three hits and striking out two. The scheduled Tuesday night JV game from Lexington was cancelled due to lack of players for the Minutewomen.
