Her three-run double in the top of the sixth inning Friday put Southside ahead to stay and her fifth home run of the week an inning later capped her seven-RBI game in the Lady Saints’ 15-8 win at Walter J. Baird.

Chang went 3-for-4, driving in runs with a fifth-inning single in addition to her double and homer.

Walter J. Baird scored four times in the bottom of the fifth to edge in front 8-7.

Sarah Kizer tripled as she joined Chang with multiple hits while Lily Beth Waddle doubled.

Parker Herrin pitched the full seven innings for the win, allowing nine hits while striking out four.
