On the 11th of June, Cassie did a fine job backing up the first baseman in right field. She got on base with a single and a walk, consistent with her performances in previous games. Excitement came early in the game when Victoria caught a fly ball in left field that initiated a triple play! Offensively, Victoria was also impressive with 2 singles and a triple.
