The Lady Mustangs managed just one hit on the night.

Blake was two for three at the plate with a triple and two runs batted in and Holt was two for three with five RBIs and a double.

Emily Overall was three for four with a double and three RBIs and Naomi Graham was two for four with a double.

In a game delayed because of stormy weather, Milano fell on the road to league leading Somerville 15-7.

The contest started on Friday evening, but was called in the third inning due to lightning and bad weather.

Because the game was less than five innings, the contest had to start over when play began Saturday morning.

Naomi Graham tossed the loss against the Lady Yeguas, striking out seven batters and walking five.

Overall was two for three at the plate with a home run, a double and three RBIs. Blake smashed a triple with a run batted in and Holt connected for a two run double.

Keely LaGrone also batted a run in, going two for four at the plate.

The Lady Eagles will host Burton on Friday and then travel to Snook on Monday.

They will close out the regular season on April 15 when they host Somerville.
