Jesse Carlson came on in the 8th to continue the no-hitter. He got a ground out and then hit a batter which prompted a change to Tracey Thorpe. Thorpe got a fly ball and strikeout to end the inning.
In the 9th Thorpe struck out the leadoff man, walked the next hitter, and struck out the following batter. With two outs Thorpe gave up a run scoring double to lose the no-hitter and the shutout.
