“She just loves the limelight,” Bread said. “She loves the big game, and, when that time comes, she's going to be there no matter what it is.”

But Frazier's performance would have been for naught if not for designated player Cheyenne Brophy.

With two out and McDoulett on second, Brophy walked to the plate. Bread called timeout and beckoned his hitter to the third base coach's box.

“This is your time,” Bread told Brophy. “This is that time we were talking about where someone has to step up and get it done. Enjoy it, and have fun with it.”

Brophy smacked Orr's offering through the hole between the first and second basemen to drive in McDoulett.

“I really didn't think it was going to happen,” Brophy said of her game-winning hit.

Bread said he was excited for Brophy.

“Those are moments you live for as a coach,” he said.
