Candice Rainwater (Dana Point, Calif.) came on in relief in the fifth with two Princeton batters on base. Rainwater allowed three hits, five runs (all earned) and struck out one in one inning.

Princeton pitcher Erin Snyder threw a complete-game shutout allowing just two hits and striking out 10 Nevada batters in five innings.
