Kylee Dewey took the loss in game two, finishing with two strikeouts.

Taytum Mello got the win in game two.

The Corsairs will play many of their games at a neutral site in Redding this season because al conference teams are required to travel on the same day of competition.

They will host four doubleheaders late in the season, two each against Shasta and Siskiyous.

Their home opener will be on May 6 against Shasta.
