Sydney Garcia led the Roos at the plate, finishing 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored.
The Bears got the scoring started in the top of the third with a run scoring single and pushed the lead to 2-0 after an RBI triple in the fifth.
In the bottom of the sixth, the Roos cracked the scoreboard for the first time when Bre Hunter’s single to center plated Garcia, cutting the lead in half.
