Kennedy's walkoff caps off four-homerun comeback for Augustana

WINONA, Minn. -- After responding to Missouri Western State taking a lead a lead, Sarah Kennedy delivered the final punch with a two-out solo homerun that gave Augustana an 8-7 win and a trip to the winner's bracket in the first round of the NCAA Central Region 1 tournament.

The freshman from Bettendorf, Iowa belted her seventh home run of the season and advanced Augustana (44-13) to the winner's bracket and a rematch with No. 1 seed Winona State who advanced by way of a 3-2 win against eighth-seeded Southern Arkansas earlier in the afternoon.

Augustana's lone senior Lindsay Spanton pulled the Vikings even with a three-run homerun in the sixth inning that set up Kennedy's seventh-inning heroics.

As the home team, the Vikings were able to respond to the Griffons on multiple occasions and Augustana used four home runs to fuel their Friday-afternoon victory. Jenelle Trautmann drilled her 17th and 18th homeruns to keep the Vikings within the hunt and increase her school record to 54 as she has now hit 18 round-trippers in each of her three seasons at Augustana.
