|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
