She's a rookie, in this case calling her first game after only watching you work one game right? She wants some help if she's calling bouncing balls strikes. Just like when I coached if she had been my partner I would have called time and taken her asside to do a little on field mechanics coaching. She knows that a bouncing ball isn't a strike (one would hope that much at least) so give her a chance to calm down, relax and then go back in there. Granted it's not your job but she is your partner, calm her down just as you would a teammate that is swinging at balls 3 feet off the plate.
