With a runner on base in the bottom half of the third inning, Turquoise Pierre laced a laser liner into the left field corner, then figuratively flipped the switch on her nitro afterburners to round the bases for an inside-the-park home run.

The Monsters loaded the bases in the top half of the fourth with two out, but Polson pitcher Katelyne Druyvestein wriggled off the hook with a strikeout.
