The Trojans had a five-run third inning on their way to an eight run win.
The Trojans had RBI hits in the inning by Cain, Heather Maxwell, Gilbreath and Molly Garrett. Ashlyn Shaver also had a bases loaded walk.
One inning later, the Trojans extended their lead to eight when they scored three runs.
Madison Stewart hit a two-run home run and Shaver drove in a run with a sacrifice fly to left field.
After allowing a run in the fifth, the Trojans got the run back in the sixth on a Shaver double.
