2003 — In her second season with the Ducks, Poore started in 47 games behind the plate and as the season progressed so did her offensive power. She hit all five of her home runs in the last month of the regular season, including the game-winning home run to lead the Ducks to a 6-5, eight-inning victory over then-No. 5 Washington in Seattle. The San Diego, Calif. native finished that game 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run scored and went on to finish 6-for-13 (.462) in the Ducks’ last five games of the regular season. Carried her momentum into the postseason, going 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI while hitting her first career triple. Hit .240 in the postseason, including a 2-for-4 performance in the last game of the season.
