In the opening matchup of the 2013 Guam Women’s Fast Pitch League, the Tough Chicks made a statement topping team Baby Bottomed Out 24-9 Sunday afternoon at the Leo Palace Resort. The game was called after four-and-a-half innings of play due to the eight-run mercy rule.

Down 6-1, the Tough Chicks exploded in the bottom of the second inning scoring an impressive 13 runs to take the lead. With the bases loaded, Margaret Cepeda started the run reaching home on a bases loaded walk. Left fielder Toni Rose Villaflores then scored on field error. With the bases still loaded, poor pitching haunted team Baby Bottomed Out as four runs in a row were scored off walks and wild pitches. The Tough Chicks took full advantage of pitches as third baseman Jericha Casil hit a RBI single that drove home Cammy Muna. Casil later reached home on a bases loaded walk. To round out the inning, Stephanie Olivares cranked the ball to center field that brought home Cepeda and Villaflores for the two RBI single. The Tough Chicks would end the inning up 14-6.

The Tough Chicks carried the momentum gained into the bottom of the third inning as Cepeda whacked a pitch to deep center field to score a three run in the park homerun.

Team Baby Bottomed Out continued to do well in the top of the second inning adding fours more runs to the board. After getting on base off a hit single, Tammy Mendiola later scored the first run of the inning stealing home on a wild pitch. Cabrera then cranked a two RBI single that drove home Kiana Blas and Quenga. Cabrera would score the final run of the inning off an overthrow to third base. Team Baby Bottomed Out would end the inning up 6-1.
