Pride Open Final Series Against Team Mexico

On June 29, the USSSA Pride will open a second, and final, series against Team Mexico. The last time out, the Pride finished the series 1-4.

The Pride come into this matchup with momentum after splitting a tight series with Team Canada. The Pride only gave up an average of 1.5 runs a game, which is an improvement from the first series against Canada, when the team gave up an average of 4.25 runs a game.

Although the Pride were close to winning this last series, with two of the five losses being decided by one run, scoring was more abundant in the first series against Team Mexico. The game the Pride won against Team Mexico was done in convincing fashion winning 7-3, scoring all seven in one inning.  

A player to watch out for on Team Mexico is Sydney Romero.  She had an outstanding hitting performance and was a key factor in Team Mexico coming out on top in close games.    

The Pride found their footing in the circle last series, largely in part by Jailyn Ford who pitched a complete game shutout in game two accompanied by nine strikeouts. Odicci Alexander appeared more confident from the mound with more experience under her belt in addition to Megan Good

From the plate, the sticks came alive for the Pride, specifically for Jessie Warren who dropped consecutive bombs in games two, three and four.

The Pride start their series with Team Mexico June 29th, at 7 PM at the Space Coast Stadium. Tickets to the game can be found here.
