KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Nicole Trimboli hit a three-run homer and Jennie Finch struck out six as the Bandits spoiled the USSSA Pride's home opener with a 4-2 victory.

With one run already in and Finch and Kristie Fox on base in the top of the second, Trimboli blasted one over the left-field fence off of Pride starter Monica Abbott.

Finch's RBI single drove in Stacy May earlier in the inning.

The Pride scored two right back in the bottom of the inning on a two-run homer by Oli Keohohou, but Finch shut the Pride down after that.

Finch (3-0) allowed only two hits.
