With Milford trailing 2-0 in sixth inning Dupuis swatted a game-tying two-run homer. Parker followed that up with a single, moved to second on a Katherine Paul sacrifice bunt, and scored on Kaitlyn Nelson’s hot shot to shortstop that was thrown away for a 3-2 Spartans lead.
Parker, who was strong in the circle despite the loss, picked up one of her 12 strikeouts to open the top of the seventh inning, but Portsmouth managed a pair of singles to regain momentum. Parker then walked the bases loaded, struck out the Clippers No. 2 batter and then busted their third batter inside. Unfortunately for the Spartans, the batter got just enough of the inside pitch for a bloop single to left field scoring all three baserunners.
