Pauly, Racers Take the Lead in Series against DiamondsJuly 28, 2012 - National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) Akron Racers
After a 1-1 tie in the first inning, a two and a half inning long scoreless streak was broken in the fourth inning when Racers short stop Aja Paculba blasted an (.279) RBI single.
The Diamonds designated player Rachel Folden (.405) tied the score back up to 2-2 in the sixth inning with another RBI single shortly after.
Racers pitcher Erin Arevalo (1-2) and her defense shut down the opportunity for the Diamonds to score after the fourth; Arevalo only gave up one earned run on four hits. This was Arevalo's first win of her professional career.
Tonight was Racers center fielder Lisa Modglin statue giveaway night at Firestone Stadium. This turned out to be appropriate when Modglin (.298) went six for seven (one walk) in batting overall in both games tonight against the Carolina Diamonds.
The Racers look to take the series from the Diamonds tomorrow, July 29, at 2:05pm at Firestone Stadium. Join the Racers in "Pink the Park" for breast cancer research, support and fundraising after the inaugural Akron Race for the Cure tomorrow morning.
