Wesley were victims of the big inning as Cabrini scored six runs in the fourth inning to pick up the 6-2 win in the doubleheader opener.
After Cabrini plated six runs in the fourth, Wesley got a run back in the fifth when Karina Cardona hit a solo homer to center field.
Cardona had a pair of hits in the loss while DiRubbio collected a hit in the seventh inning.

After back-to-back singles started the second inning, Miranda Kinney came around to score when Bianca Newsom reached on an error by the Cabrini pitcher. Dori Loukopoulos plated DiRubbio in the third inning on an RBI double.
Cabrini tied the game at two in the third inning, but Wesley responded with three runs in the fourth, two of which came on a two-out single by Brooke Retkowski. Once again, Cabrini nodded the game with three runs in the fourth inning and took the 10-6 lead behind a four-run fifth.
