Kayla Garcia went the distance in the pitcher's circle, and was 3-3 at the plate with a walk and a double with one run batted in. Marisa Felix had a 2-run home run for Ventura (15-12, 7-2). Kali Brown was 2-4 with a double and an RBI.
Adriana Clemons was the other Pirate with a hit, collecting a single in the victory.
