Slammers vs Chicago Bandits
Teams Pair Off in Exhibition Game as Both Teams Begin 2013 Season
Bandits Stadium 27 Jennie Finch Way
Rosemont, IL 60018 
Bandits 5 - Slammers 2
June 1st, 2013  
Top: Sammy Marshall- Casey Clutch/ Creakbaum - Courtney Heeley - Natalie Hernandez - Brit Gardner - Kelsey Dotson - Sadie Conner - Casey Crozier - Coryn Schmit
Bottom: Jhavon Hamilton - Kelsi Jones - Jenna Marsalli - Shawna Sadler - Melissa Preish - Kaitlyn Ranieri 

Game Highlights:  1st Inning: Slammers jumped out in front when, after two outs, Natalie Hernandez (UIC) and Mellisa Priesh (UIC) cracked back to back line drive doubles to the fence giving Brit Gardner a 1-0 lead. In the bottom of the first Bandits' leadoff hitter Vicky Galindo beat out an infield hit then scored on a base hit by Bandit SS Tammy Williams. 
Backed by great defensive plays by both teams the game then turned into a pitching duel between Slammer starting pitcher Brittany Gardner (Loyola) and Bandit's starting pitcher Andrea Williamson who was relieved by newly drafted Texas A & M star Mel Dumezich in the 4th inning.
Gardner held the Bandits hitless in the 3 and 4th inning but a leadoff home run and 2 hits in the 5th put 4 runs on the board for the Bandits. . .In the 5th inning the Slammers turned to new Slammer Casey Crozier (Youngstown St) who allowed only 1 hit in her 2 inning stint. A brilliant bases loaded running catch in left centerfield by Shawna Sadler (WKU) ended the 5th inning with no further damage and the Bandits holding a 5-1 lead. .
The Slammers final run was scored when Coryn Schmit (UIC) drew a one out walk in the 7th, Kelsi Jones (MO) singled and Schmit then tallied on an error making the final score Bandits 5 Slammers 2. 
* Special thanks to Sammy Marshall ( Western IL) who joined us for this exhibition game and provided immediate impact with her blinding speed at leadoff hitter. She was so fast to first base she will ever be known as "Jimmy John" by those of us who watched her play. She now plans to resume her coaching career. Thanks Sammy! 
Slammers: 2 runs - 5 hits - no errors. LP Gardner
Bandits: 5 runs - 9 hits - 1 error. WP Dumezich 
* Many thanks to the Chicago Bandit organization for hosting this exhibition game then adjusting to the storm conditions and allowing the Slammers to use their impressive indoor practice facility to warm up then play the game on that beautiful indoor playing surface.
