Red Devils again fare well north of state line

Red Devils again fare well north of state line
South Fulton would be sitting pretty in the Kentucky First District standings.
The Red Devils won their second game of the season Wednesday — both against entries from that league — with a 5-4 victory over Hickman County.
SF, now 2-10, beat Carlisle County 16-0 last week for its other triumph.
In the only other game involving a local team on the diamonds Wednesday, the Obion Central softball team dropped a 5-2 decision at Montgomery Central.
Today’s slate has only one baseball game — Obion Central beginning play in the Easter Slam at Dyersburg — and one softball contest — OC facing Grace Baptist Academy in the Lady Trojan Invitational at Soddy Daisy.
SF 5, Hickman Co. 4
The Red Devils rallied for four runs in the bottom of the sixth to erase a three-run deficit and beat HC.
Chance Hamlin had a triple that drove in two runs in the comeback. Ryan Prince had two RBIs — one on a sacrifice fly — and Austin Hazlewood had a single and a ribbie.
Cody Tatum and Kyle Clouse had South Fulton’s other two hits.
Hamlin (1-2) picked up the pitching win, allowing all four runs, though just one was earned. He stuck out six, walked one and gave up just four hits.
Ryan Prince turned away a seventh-inning threat when the Falcons had a hit and a walk to earn the save. Prince recorded two of his three outs via strikeout.
SF’s next game is Monday at home vs. Trenton.
Mont. Central 5, OC 2
The Lady Rebels began another stretch of games out of the area with a road trip east that included a stop in the Clarksville area.
Obion Central (17-4) led 2-1 in the fourth before MC put up a four-spot and then shut the locals down.
Ashlyn Runions and Kayla Bramlett both went 2-for-3 for OC, Runions smacking a double and driving in a run. Payton Robertson and Megan Gargus also had two-base hits, while Carly Whipple accounted for the Lady Rebels’ other RBI.
Macy Allison saw her pitching record dip to 10-4 with the loss. She struck out five, walked three and surrendered eight hits. Published in The Messenger 4.5.12
