Albion produced a pair of four-run innings and it tacked on two more in the sixth. The Britons trailed 2-0 after two innings and 6-4 after 4 ½, but they rallied for the victory.

Rebeka Enders had the clutch hit in the fifth, a two-out double driving in three runs.

Witkowski went 4-for-4 with a double. She finished the day going 7-for-8 with two RBI and currently boasts a .625 batting average.

Suwarsky produced five hits and three RBI on Tuesday, moving her batting average to .360 with a team-high six RBI.

Brianna Charron pitched the complete game for the second victory of her collegiate career. She was charged with three earned runs on nine hits and two walks.

"We are getting better at handling adversity and responding when the opponents score," Head Coach Leigh Ann LaFave-Austin said. "We just have to have a better start to the game so we don't have to always dig out of situations. I'm pleased with the bounce back. We have been growing together as a team. We have received contributions from everyone, top to bottom, of the lineup and the pitchers are throwing well."
