PREVIEWING THE GAME:
Utah enters the game with a 16-26 overall record, while UVSC is 18-15 on the year. Utah defeated UVSC 8-5 in the two teams' first meeting on April 6 at Ute Field. After falling behind 1-0 in the game, Utah pounded out five runs in the fourth. Melissa Stahnke ripped a two-run single to get the Utes going in the inning, before eventually scoring on a single by teammate Devina Quintero. Quintero would then cross the plate off a shot over the fence by Ivette Hernandez to put Utah up 5-1. In the sixth, Utah added three more runs. The first two looked like deja vu as Hernandez would homer with Quintero on base. The final run came off a solo shot by Kate Nygaard. UVSC would score four in the top of the seventh to make it an 8-5 final.
