CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – June 16, 2012 – With Lisa Modglin and Sam Marder on base, Akron Racers’ second baseman Nicole Pauly blasted a two run double in the top of the first inning to give the Racers an early 2-0 lead.
 
The Florida Pride (5-2) battled back, scoring one in the second and then taking the lead in the bottom of the sixth after Charlotte Morgan blasted an RBI single to score Lauren Lappin for the second run of the inning.
 
The Pride would hold on, taking a 3-2 victory over the Racers. 
 
Racers (3-4) rookie Hillary Bach (1-1) took to the circle for Akron in just her second start as a professional. Bach threw 5.1 innings while allowing seven hits, three runs and three walks. She struck out four Pride batters in the losing effort.
