Program Note: Game 2 of the NPF Championship Series will be televised on Aug. 22, 8pm Eastern Time on CBS Sports Network.


TUSCALOOSA, AL (August 21, 2016) – The USSSA Pride’s formula for success isn’t fancy: a lot of pitching and some timely hitting.

The regular-season champion Pride stuck to that model to defeat the Chicago Bandits 3-1 on Sunday night at Rhoads Stadium in the opening game of the best-of-three NPF Championship Series.

A crowd of 1,618 for Sunday’s session assured a new playoff attendance record, with 6,070 so far. The previous record of 5,592 for the entire event was set last year in Hoover.

The Pride (40-13) has a chance to claim the Cowles Cup with a second win over defending champion Chicago (24-27) on Monday night at 7 p.m. CT in a rematch of last year’s title series.

“I think that they’re a very scrappy team,” Pride coach Lonni Alameda said of the Bandits, “very powerful but very scrappy.”

Most of the scoring came by way of solo home runs. Megan Wiggins, batting in the leadoff position for the Pride, started the game off with a shot to right-center in the bottom of the first inning. Chelsea Goodacre led off the bottom of the second with a solo blast to nearly the same spot to make it 2-0. After the Pride got an RBI single from Lauren Chamberlain – driving in Wiggins, who had drawn a walk to lead off the bottom of the third – Chicago got in on the action in the top of the fifth inning with a leadoff solo homer from shortstop Kristen Brown, cutting the Pride’s lead to 3-1.

Chicago had its best chance to get back into it after Brown’s shot. Third baseman Jill Barrett beat out an infield single with one out, and outfielder Brittany Cervantes was hit by a pitch with two outs, giving the Bandits two runners on base. USSSA Pride starter Keilani Ricketts coaxed a fly ball to left field for the third out to end the threat.

“Some days for us, our best just isn’t good enough,” Chicago coach Mike Steuerwald said. “Our bench was outstanding: I don’t know if there was one out, hit or pitch that I didn’t hear all 15 in our dugout. Overall, I thought we did a great job of staying in that game.”

The Pride handed the ball to closer Jordan Taylor to bring it home. She earned her 10th save with two innings of no-hit ball.

“I’m still adjusting,” Taylor said. “It’s ironic because in college the seventh inning was my worst inning.

“I still think (the closer role) is being defined in softball. It’s not really a thing yet.”

Ricketts (8-5), a left-hander, gave up one run on five hits in five innings with three strikeouts and no walks.

Morgan Foley (1-5) and Lacey Waldrop held the Pride to just five hits. The difference was that USSSA Pride hit with power, or with people in scoring position.

Goodacre went 2-for-3 with an RBI and one run scored. The second-year player is on a mission.

“I don’t have a championship yet,” she said, “and I don’t have a (collegiate) national championship, so to be with this team fighting to win the last game is incredible.”

Chicago isn’t conceding anything.

“Obviously we don’t like to make it easy,” said Cervantes, who went 2-for-2. “We’ll come back ready to play.”
