Kelly Groves walked, Josie Wells singled and Keesha Wyatt had a two-run double.
Rock Hill answered with all five of its runs in the bottom of the inning.
Brooke Long singled and Jazel DeAutremont double and Brooke Skinner walked to load the bases.
Kim Moore walked to force in a run and Kayla Kelley had a two-run single. Megan Russell walked to load the bases and a throwing error into left field allowed two runs to score.
