Obion Central’s Carly Whipple records an out of South Fulton’s Paxton Sisson on Monday.
Obion Central made the most out of very little.
The Lady Rebels got just one hit off South Fulton’s Haley McKinney, yet pieced together two walks and an error to plate the game’s only run in the seventh inning of a 1-0 victory over the Devilettes Monday night in prep softball action in Troy.
Meaghen Strayhorn, who’d drawn a base on balls to open the inning, raced home with one out when SF third baseman Marina Barclay first bobbled, then threw wildly to first a ball hit by Carly Whipple to account the lone tally.
Obion Central improved to 18-6-1, while South Fulton is now 12-3.
In a game involving Obion County’s third softball entry Monday, Union City beat Trenton 12-5.
Today’s slate has Obion Central playing at Westview, South Fulton on the road for a doubleheader at Greenfield, and Union City playing host to Halls.
UC’s game today is slated to start at 4.
Monday’s highlights are as follows:
OC 1, South Fulton 0
After Strayhorn walked to open the bottom of the seventh, she moved up a base on Kayla Bramlett’s sacrifice bunt.
Alex Wilson then walked, setting up Whipple’s hard ground ball that Barclay snagged, but then bobbled before throwing errantly to first as Strayhorn raced home for the game’s only run.
Central’s Macy Allison and McKinney of South Fulton hooked up in an old-fashioned pitcher’s duel otherwise.
Allison got out of a pair of trouble spots when the Devilettes threatened in both the first and seventh innings — the latter ending when McKinney was thrown out at home after tripling and then trying to score on a ground ball to first.
SF, which out-hit Obion Central 5-1, also got the first two runners aboard in the first, but failed to score.
OC’s best threat before its last at-bat came when it put runners at the corners with one out before a line-drive that Devilette rightfielder Chelsie Pitts turned into a double play halted the scoring chance.
Payton Robertson collected the Lady Rebels’ lone hit
McKinney, Barclay, Pitts, Kacie Daugherty and Desiree Sturgeon all had hits for the Devilettes.
Union City 12, Trenton 5
Kaitlyn Wheeles doubled twice and singled, scored three runs and drove in three to pace the Lady Tornadoes, who improved to 10-7.
Winning pitcher Brittany Parker had two singles and three RBI to help herself at the plate, while Taylor Hargrove smacked a double for Union City on Monday.
Parker bettered her personal pitching mark to 3-4 by going the distance while allowing seven hits and three walks.
She fanned three Tidette hitters.
Union City made the most of its nine hits and was guilty of just one defensive error.
