MOBILE, AL -- No. 22 Mobile defeated No. 20 Central Methodist, 3-2, with a rally in the bottom of the seventh inning on the first day of the Gulf Coast Invitational.

The Lady Rams entered the bottom of the seventh inning down 2-0 with only two hits through six innings of action, when Korie Fontenot hit a one-out solo homer to get the offense going. A walk and error put two runners on, and then Brittany Dunson singled in the tying run with a hit to left. Shortly after, Hannah Beth Baker chopped the game-winning RBI infield single between home and first, with Johnna Barnes sliding home for the clincher.

Alli Hall got the win with three innings of one-hit shutout relief. She fanned two and walked two.
