The Lady Eagles trailed by as much as 10-2, before making the big comeback.  With the score 10-2 MSJC scored six runs in the bottom of the fourth to get back in the game.  The six run fourth was highlighted by a three run homerun by MSJC centerfielder Kristy Connor.  The Rams answered with two more runs in the top of the fifth to push the lead to 12-8, before the Lady Eagles late rally to win the game.  In the 7 run sixth Connor added another RBI, but the big hit came off the bat of Noehly Alvarez who hit a bases loaded double to drive home three runs.

MSJC finished the day with 17 hits led by Connor's 4 for 4 effort.  Alvarez finished the day 2 for 4 with 5 RBIs at the plate while picking up the pitching victory.  Alvarez threw 5 innings allowing 5 runs, but none of them were earned.

The win improved MSJC's record to 7-19-1 overall and 3-8 in the Foothill Conference.  The Lady Eagles will play their final home game of the season on Friday when they host College of the Desert.  Friday's game will begin at 3 pm.
