She also stole two bases and did not strikeout in the contest. Defensively she finished with two putouts and five assists without committing an error. She had a 0.750 on-base percentage for the week and compiled a 0.667 slugging percentage.

Kristoff tossed a complete game four-hit shutout in the opening game of the doubleheader with four strikeouts and one walk. On the season, Kristoff is 3-3 with a 5.31 ERA.
