The Gold team got on the board in the top of the seventh when Vock, who took over at second base for the Gold squad in the sixth inning, blasted a solo home run to left-center. In the ninth, sophomore Ashlie Ortega homered for the Gold team, making the score 6-2.
Vock finished the day with three hits in five at bats, scoring two runs and driving home two. Marston also finished 3-for-5, as she plated a run and scored one of her own. Taylor had two hits and scored twice.
