She gave up two hits with six strikeouts and one walk. Alvarez helped her own cause in the 9th inning when she drove in two runs. Alejandra Ortiz (Tucson Magnet HS) hit an RBI double in the inning.

Alvarez hit an RBI single that drove in Gemma Contreras (Salpointe Catholic HS) in the 1st inning. Alvarez finished 3 for 3 with an RBI and a double for the game. Cynthia Pelayo (Vision HS) hit a sacrifice-fly in the 3rd inning that scored Aubre Carpenter (Sabino HS). Carpenter went 1 for 2 with a run scored, a walk and two stolen bases.
