The Fresno State softball team's bats cooled off for most of Sunday, yet they still managed to make the biggest impact.
Held scoreless and limited to two hits through the first six innings in the final game of the Louisville Slugger Bash, Fresno State pulled out a 1-0 victory against Saint Mary's after Bria Kennedy delivered the winning run with a walk-off single.
Kennedy, who walked during her previous two at-bats, hit a grounder up the middle with two outs in the seventh and Kierra Willis raced home for the game's lone run.
Bulldogs pitcher Jill Compton held Saint Mary's to four hits and struck out two to record her first and Fresno State's fourth shutout of the season.
Never miss a local story.
Compton got into trouble in the third when she walked the first batter, then gave up a single. But the junior answered with three straight outs, two via infield pop ups and the last on a fly out to center field.
Fresno State, which is hitting .337 with 13 home runs on the season, never had a runner advance past first base until the seventh inning.
Willis started the rally by drawing a walk, then advanced two bases on back-to-back ground outs. Kennedy then finished it with her hit off Gaels starting pitcher Katie Moss, who finished with three hits allowed, three walks and seven strikeouts. Kennedy raised her season average to .393, which is sixth on the team.
