Kym recorded a three-hit performance in Game 2 that included an RBI double and two singles.

In Game 2, Hope rallied from a 6-0 deficit to take the lead with a seven-run second.

Designated hitter Trace Slancik of Scotts, Michigan (Vicksburg) extended Hope's lead with a fourth-inning RBI single, but the Thunder struck for a five-run fifth that gave them back the lead.
