Girl Power starting pitcher Becky Lynch walked four batters and all four scored as Elias hits a grand slam and drives in six runs in route to an Outlaws 10-5 victory.
Becky Lynch really only had one bad inning but she walked the bases loaded and Elias made her pay. In all Girl Power pitchers issued seven walks and six of them came across to score. Lio Rush who scored 3 runs in the game lead off the game with a walk and stole second. With two outs Lio scored ahead of a 2 run HR by Luke Harper. Girl Power came right back with a 2 run HR by Sarah Logan scoring Naomi who had singled earlier in the inning.
In the top of the third inning, Lynch started to get wild walking Lio and The Miz. With two outs Samoa Joe walked and Elias blasted one over the wall for a grand slam giving the Outlaws a 6-2 lead. Girl Power never says die and got one run back on a Carmella RBI single scoring Naomi. Two innings later Charlotte Flair and Nattie had RBI’s to cut the lead to 6 to 5. The score remained 6-5 until the top of the 9th inning when the Outlaws put the game out of reach.
The Outlaws batted around and scored four runs with the Miz and Kevin Owens having RBI base hits and Elias driving in two runs. Shelton Benjamin came in relief of Randy Orton and pitched 3 perfect innings.
After the game, Paige was asked about not having another reliever ready in the 9th inning. Paige response was next question. Becky Lynch took full responsibility for the loss. “This one is on me. I can’t walk so many batters.”
Tomorrow’s starters are Sonya Deville who for the third straight start will be asked to end a losing streak against Sheamus.
