Madison Hunsaker got the first RBI for MSU as she doubled off the base of the wall in right center.

Later in the third, Olivia Krehbiel sent a ball over the left center wall for a three-run home run to put the Bears up 4-1.

Then Hunsaker and Annie Mueller each hit a three-RBI double to left field to put the mercy rule into effect after MSU recorded three more outs.
