Senior center fielder Morgan Hutchison - the school's all-time hits leader - led off the top of the third with an inside-the-park home run down the left-field line.
A diving attempt at a catch by Hurricane junior Addie Fullen came up empty, allowing the speedy Hutchison to motor around the bases with ease as the ball rolled to the fence.
Barrett then reached on an error and soon scored when Amy Parsons ripped a double down the right-field line. By the end of the inning Rogers and Hurricane trailed 4-0.
Hurricane came back to tie the game in the fourth, when Rogers smacked her Kanawha Valley-leading ninth home run of the season to left, scoring herself and Sargent, who had walked to lead off the inning. An RBI double by Fullen and a run-scoring single from Emily Davis made it 4-4, but West never gave up the lead.
When she returned to the circle in the fifth with a fresh, 6-4, advantage thanks to a pair of unearned runs, it was like she had hit a reset button.
"I'm just a mellow person. I know my defense will back me up, and we have some big sticks," West said.
Hurricane never recovered and the stage is set for a winner-take-all finale at 6 p.m. today in Hurricane.
Caldwell said his team must be aggressive and successful at the top of the order for it to reach regional play.
"We've got to get people on base for our big hitters," he said. "With our offense, three earned runs, we should be able to outscore them.
"It is what it is. We were sloppy tonight. They were a little sloppy last night. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes tomorrow probably wins."
Hutchison was 3-for-3 for Lincoln County and had two RBI while Barrett went 2-for-4. Rogers, the area's leading hitter among Class AAA schools, was 3-for-3.
