After watching a ball, she ripped a game-tying solo home run over the same right-center field fence to knot the game at 3-3. The roundtripper was her 6th of the season and the 27th of her career. With the shot, Jackson ties Katie Cozy (2012-15) for the most career home runs in team history. The Lady Leopards have now gone yard 12 times this year.
