Morland struck out her first two at-bats against Oswego East's Emily Schultz, and had a sacrifice bunt in the third. Trailing 4-3 in sixth, Oswego coach Amanda Stanton went to the bench for Avila.
She was rewarded when Avila sliced a two-run double into the right field corner.
"Laurie does an awesome job pinch-hitting, it doesn't matter who is pitching. She puts the ball in play," Stanton said, adding "that was more than I could have asked for."
Stanton didn't hesitate going back to Morland, either, despite her previous at-bats.
"Hailey is the type of player, she gets progressively better," Stanton said. "She might start out struggling but that second time around she'll come through."
