Left fielder Tatiana Jackson relayed the double to shortstop Tatum Barrass and she fired home to catcher Hannah Goodman, who picked off Capizzi diving back into third base.
"The bottom line is a bad decision by me at third base cost the game for us today," said head coach Barwick. "I sent her originally and I tried to get her back, so it was really a bad decision on my part."
The Viking backstop was just looking for a break.
"We were just looking for any cracks in their base-running and we found one," Goodman said.
"It was a great, great, great play," her younger sister added.
"Emma is amazing," he said. "She doesn't make many mistakes. She's a great location pitcher and she has that fastball when she needs it, but she uses that to complement her off-speed pitches."
While her rise ball was the toughest pitch to hit, it wasn't her focus.
"I was also working on a lot of backdoor pitches where they would go out and come right back in right on the edge of the zone," Bevard said.
Bevard struck out the side twice and had two strikeouts in three other innings and her catcher Maura McGinn appreciated that.
"I've been catching Emma for three years now and it's a whole lot of fun because I usually know where the ball is going so I can call it and know that she will try and pitch it there every single time," McGinn said.
On the other side, it was the Viking pitcher who was praising the play of her catcher and the big home run.
"We weren't hitting their pitcher in the beginning and it boosted us and gave the girls a lot of confidence and it gave me confidence and it just set the tone for this game," Jordyn Goodman said.
The Vikings were also playing without four players: Courtney Austin (broken finger), Brianna Eiser (sprained ankle), Makayla Shuey (leg injury) and Morgan Thayer (field trip), but their depth, that included second baseman Trinity Piller, called up from junior varsity, proved its worth.
"We definitely have a lot of girls on this team with a lot of experience. We didn't have to start from the ground up," Jordyn Goodman said. "We all want to be here. We are excited for practice. We are excited to be together and it showed on the field. It really translates into hitting and defense."
Meanwhile, Barwick lamented the Lions second one-run loss this season.
