Obion Central’s Brady York heads for third during Tuesday’s game.
When Obion Central broke out of its recent offensive slump Monday, the Rebels did so with a bang.
OC exploded for season highs in hits and runs with a 16-3 mashing of Westview in a game called after five innings due to the 10-run rule at Troy.
Dustin Smyth had four hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in four runs for Obion Central, which improved to 3-2 in District 13AA play.
The win also broke a four-game losing skid while bettering Central’s overall mark to 9-12.
The Rebels had struggled through a four-game stretch last week when they could manage but four runs and 10 hits prior to Monday’s outburst.
In other games Monday involving local teams, Greenfield clinched the District 14A North Division regular season championship and ended Union City’s eight-game winning streak with a 3-0 victory over the Tornadoes.
Meanwhile, South Fulton was a 10-6 victor over Lake County.
The following is a recap of those games.
OC 16, Westview 3
The first seven Central batters reached in a six-run first and the Rebels went on to score in every inning.
Colton Woodward and Trey Phipps had three hits each and scored four times apiece for the county locals, one of Woodward’s safeties being a double.
Blake Walton and Parker McMinn singled twice and crossed the plate two times each, while both Tanner Cary and Brady York scored twice each for the victors.
Woodward was the winning pitcher, going the distance with five strikeouts and two walks.
The two teams will meet again today in Martin, first pitch scheduled for 5 o’clock.
Greenfield 3, UC 0
Twister Kevin Freeman had good stuff on Monday afternoon.
G’field’s Dalton Potts — a UT Martin signee — was just a tad better.
Potts struck out 14, while limiting the Twisters to just four baserunners (one via a hit, one by way of walk and two hit batsmen).
For his part, Freeman allowed just four hits and walked one, but three Twister errors aided Greenfield’s offensive cause.
Branson Sherwood had the lone UC safety, while Matthew Keathley drew a walk.
Twisters Cameron Powers and Tyler Steward were both hit by a pitch.
The Twisters are 15-5 going into this evening’s rematch with G’field, set to begin at 4 within the confines of Elam Stadium.
SF 10, Lake Co. 6
Cody Tatum returned after missing two games with a sprained ankle and made an immediate impact.
The Red Devil junior was a perfect 3-for-3 with a solo home run. Tatum scored three times.
Kyle Clouse also stood out for South Fulton (11-6) with a 2-for-4 outing that included a triple and three RBI.
Red Devil Chance Hamlin also drove in a pair, while Harrison Hawks chased one run in.
Meanwhile, Ryan Prince — who missed Friday’s win over Bradford with a sprained knee — gained the mound triumph.
Prince struck out seven and walked two in his five innings of work. Curtis Cathey came on in relief and held the Falcons in check during the final two innings.
The two squads will meet again today in Tiptonville.
