Taylor County went up 4-2 with two runs in the second on RBI-hits from Reagan Pollock and Becca Orberson and 5-1 in the third on an error and wild pitch.
Wethington followed with a third-inning bomb to center field before the Lady Cardinals put the game away with a three-run fourth and five-run tallies in the fifth and sixth innings.
