The only run Edmoundson surrendered was a solo shot to Haley Lee in the third inning.
The Lady Vols tacked on some insurance in the fifth. Makinzy Herzog loaded the bases and then threw a wild pitch to allow Lair Beautae to score. Two more runs came home when Kelcy Leach bounced a slow roller through the second baseman’s legs.
