The Chukars struggled getting the bat on the ball, as they only had 3 hits in the loss, and left 8 runners on base. 
In game two, The Chukars came in with newfound energy and were able to regroup, starting with Shaylee Burraston pitching. Burraston went all 7.0 innings, giving up 3 hits, no runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Alexa Rice hit a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 4th inning. The Chukar defense also made stellar plays, including a dart from centerfielder Leia Jenkins to 2nd base to throw a CSI runner out as they looked to turn their single into a double.
The Chukars are back in action on the road Friday, as they pay a visit to the Yakima Valley Yaks in East Region play.
