Brickey and the Lady Cyclones retired the Tennessee High batters in order in the fourth, and the Lady Cyclones added two runs in the home side of the frame.
The home side of the fifth saw Elizabethton leave no doubt as Brickey hit a three-run homerun. Jordan Grindstaff and Macie Herrmann scored in the bottom of the sixth to secure the win for Elizabethton.
Brickey finished the game 2-for-2 at the plate with four RBIs. In the circle, Brickey picked up the win by allowing just six hits and recording four strikeouts.
