It was the big inning that hurt the Red Dragons as Hurricane struck for five runs in the second and six in the sixth.
Red Dragons pitcher Ali Haynes was able to post zeroes in the third, fourth, and fifth innings, giving St. Albans a chance to battle back, but the offense never showed up.
"That's what happens when you fall behind batters," St. Albans coach Greg Garber said. "She started the game like that, then in the middle of the game actually worked out of some jams and started throwing well. Then she fell back into that pattern again in the sixth inning. I don't know of any pitcher from the major leagues down that can fall behind hitters and still be consistently effective.
"They beat us in every phase of the game tonight."
Hurricane's Linzie Reynolds had a two-run homer as part of the sixth-inning outburst while No. 8 hitter Maddie Hebb doubled twice, driving in a run with each. Rogers finished 3 for 4 with a double and four RBIs.
"We have confidence all throughout our order," Caldwell said. "If the top of the lineup isn't getting on, our middle and back of the order should get on. Throughout we're pretty solid. When we're all hitting, there's no easy outs in our lineup."
Madi Marshall and Alyssa Bonham each singled for St. Albans.
