The result ups the Bobcats' mark to 9-3 while the Pioneers continue their seesaw of a season at 5-7. Both records are through games of April 25.
Alison Wagner was the star of the evening. The junior doubled home a couple crucial runs in the one-run ballgame, helping herself out as she went the distance in the pitcher's circle.
Kelsey Brown and Natalie Rosenthal each banged out a pair of base hits, with Brown stealing two bases.
Down 3-0 in the sixth, Patriot climbed back in it on a two-run single off the slapping left-handed bat of Rachel Hish.
The Pioneers got no closer as Wagner worked a scoreless seventh for the Bobcat victory.
Both teams head into the final stretch of the regular season. Four of Patriot's six remaining contests are against Conference 8 foes, while Battlefield has conference tilts in five of its last eight.
The Bobcats opened the campaign winning six of their first seven, going 3-2 since. The Pioneers have alternated wins and losses all spring long, and are still seeking their first two-game win streak.
