Adairsville baseball led early, but dropped an 11-6 Region 6-AAA decision Tuesday night at home to the Bremen Blue Devils.
The Tigers took a 3-0 lead in the first inning, but the visiting Blue Devils posted three runs in the fourth, five in the fifth, and three more in the sixth inning to take control with an 11-3 lead.
Adairsville scored three more runs in the final two innings, but it would not be enough.
Kyler Pelfrey singled to drive in the Tigers first run in the first inning. Caden Gibbs then blasted a two-run homer for Adairsville’s early 3-0 advantage.
Hunter Hice hit a two-run homerun in the sixth inning and Noah Dutton — who finished with two hits — had an RBI single in the seventh to account for the Tigers’ other runs. Landon Ayers also contributed two hits in the game for the Tigers.
Bremen (13-4, 6-1) took advantage of a bases loaded error that helped lead to their three-run fourth inning. Two more errors, along with a pair of singles and a three-run homer by Sam Thompson gave the Blue Devils a 7-3 lead in the fifth. Three more hits and a walk added three more Bremen runs in the sixth inning.
Adairsville (11-6, 4-3) faces another region challenge Thursday at 5:55 p.m. as the Tigers host 10th-ranked Calhoun. They will then travel to Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe Friday.
