It took three innings before they registered their first hit, but it was worth the wait for the Racers Tuesday at Firestone Stadium.

The Racers got on the board in style on A.J. Andrews’ first home run of the season and went on to snap a three-game losing streak with a 5-1 victory over the Pa. Rebellion.

“I was very focused today,” Andrews said. “I think I saw the ball really well today.”

Andrews recorded two of the Racers’ four hits, scored two runs and added a stolen base. After batting first throughout the season, she was moved to ninth as a part of manager Brian Levin’s changes after a 3-game sweep at the hands of the USSSA Pride.

“[Taylor] Schlopy and [Kelley] Montalvo’s on-base percentage were really high,” Levin said of the decision. “I wanted to get them on base and have Sam Fischer and Sami Fagan drive in some runs.”

The Racers scored runs in the next two innings and blew the game open when Fagan hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning.

Starting pitcher Sarah Pauly suffered an injury to her left leg in the fifth inning but stayed in to finish the complete game, allowing no earned runs and four strikeouts.

“It’s why we went with her in this game,” Levin said of Pauly. “We really needed a good performance and she performed well.”

Alisa Goler went 3-for-3 with an RBI and Kayla Winkfield scored the lone run for the Rebellion.

The Racers, now 4-1 against the Rebellion, will finish the two-game homes series at 7:05 p.m. Wednesday.

Levin said he hopes Tuesday’s win will help the team turn things around as the calendar turns to July. The mindset going forward is to just relax, have fun and enjoy the moment, he said.

“I think sometimes they just press a little bit and try too hard,” Levin said of his players. “We’re a better team whenever we just let loose and are just having fun out here.”
