Escobedo and Gaddis picked up an RBI each, while Boedecker added two RBIs to her season count.
Krista Law came in to hit during the sixth inning, earning an RBI on a sacrifice fly to deep-right center field.
Boedecker was one walk away from a perfect game, pitching a no-hitter and striking out 10 Lady Knights.
