The P.E.I. Re/Max Ravens recently completed the 2014 season.
The Ravens defeated the Nova Scotia 98s in dramatic fashion, scoring two runs in their last at-bat for a 4-3 come-from-behind win.
Danielle Collings (1-4) came to the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning with runners on second and third. Collings hit a sharp ground ball to second base that scored Jada Yeo (2-4) from third with the tying run, and Brianna Arsenault was able to score the winning run on the play as Nova Scotia’s second baseman threw the ball away.
“It was a huge win for the girls,” said Ravens head coach Mark Quinn. “They played very well during the playoff round, and this was a fantastic way to finish off our season.”
Emily Brothers pitched a complete game for the Ravens as she finished with nine strikeouts.
“It was excellent to see Emily get the win,” said Quinn. “She pitched very well for us all week, and has been a leader on and off the field.
The Ravens scored their first two runs of the game on a monstrous two-run blast to straightaway centre field by Arsenault, who earned All-Canadian honours.
Arsenault finished the tournament with a .529 batting average, including a .556 mark during the round robin.
