Brynn Cole was 1-for-3 with a double; Ayiana Rangel had two hits; and Fortner, Goodrich, Keeley Curtis, and Anna Genia each had a hit for the Orioles.
“We started off a bit sluggish today, but the girls kept battling and we were able to string together some hits late in the first game to come back and get the win,” said Ludington head coach Sierra Holmes.
“Lilli threw very well to keep us in that game, too. We actually had more hits in the second game, but we didn’t put anything together and left quite a few runners on base.
“We made some plays, but we still need to be sharper defensively to avoid giving up extra outs. We were able to get some of our younger kids some experience today, and they took some good cuts in that second game.”
Ludington went to 6-6 overall.
