The Blue Dragons got to starter Ariel Denney early. In the bottom of the first, Ullery blasted the sophomore hurler's 3-1 pitch over the fence in left for a 1-0 advantage.

Things were rather uneventful until the fourth, when Sabrina Luttig led off the frame with a moon shot to left, giving Hutchinson a 2-0 cushion. Five batters later, pinch hitter Cassiy Prucha singled to right, scoring Ashley Wilson from second to make it 3-0.

Garden City brought the tying run to the plate in the fifth with only one out. But Alexis Sconyers struck out, and Madison Biller grounded into a force play.

Denney lost for the second time on the day, falling to 6-6 on the season, allowing three runs on seven hits in six innings.

Wilson collected two hits for Hutchinson, and Davis struck out four in the circ
