App State would find themselves down 1-0 going into the top of the sixth inning. The Broncos scratched across a run in the top half of the third using a double and a pair of singles with Jenny Rohn coming around to score. In the eighth, however, the floodgates opened for the Broncos offensively.
Western Michigan would push across eight runs by way of five singles, a double and a home run. The homer came off the bat of Mackenzie Ritsema.
