UC 7, South Gibson 2
The Tornadoes won their sixth straight, improving to 13-4.
Union City spotted SG a 2-0 lead in the third with sloppy defensive play, but quickly rebounded with a three-spot in the bottom of the frame. A four-run sixth provided insurance and capped a 4-0 week.
Cameron Powers carried the big stick for the Twisters, going 4-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. One of Powers’ base knocks was a double.
Caleb Long also did major damage for the victors with a pair of two-base hits, two runs and a ribbie, while Brandon Griffin singled, doubled and drove home a run.
Leadoff man Drake Parker continued to be a true table-setter with two drawn walks and two runs scored.
Eric Moore improved to 3-0 with a solid five-inning pitching performance in which he allowed just one earned run (two in all), pitching around six walks, and five hits while fanning two.
Parker was credited with his fourth save of the spring with two scoreless innings in which he struck out four.
OC 15, Halls 0
The Rebels (8-8) exploded for nine runs in their first at-bat — sending 13 batters to the plate — then brought the game to a premature close via the mercy rule by tacking on six tallies in the fourth.
Colton Woodward, medically cleared to play before the game after suffering a concussion when being hit in the head by a batted ball while pitching against Gibson County Tuesday, showed no ill effects of the injury by driving in five runs with a single and a double.
Camden Napper had two RBI and scored twice, while Blake Walton, Brady York, Mitch Arnett, Jordan Smith, Parker McMinn and Trevor Riley crossed the pay station two times apiece in the romp.
Napper completely shut down the Tiger lineup, allowing just two hits and no walks while fanning two.
SF 14, Bradford 3
Kyle Clouse drove in five runs and finished just a home run shy of the cycle on Saturday evening.
Also of note were Harrison Hawks (2-for-4), Chance Hamlin (two RBI) and Wiliam Peery (double and one ribbie).
On the hill, Clouse struck out three and scattered six hits en route to the triumph.
The Redmen’s most productive inning was the fourth when the team scored eight times.
Trenton 6, SF 2
Cody Tatum homered for the second time at the Red Devil Classic, but it wasn’t enough vs. the Golden Tide.
Ryan Prince had two singles for South Fulton, which scored single tallies in both the third and fourth frames.
Losing pitcher Chance Hamlin went four innings and allowed six runs (four earned) on 11 hits. Hamlin struck out three.
