Harris tosses no-hitter, Lady Tigers top Mountaineers
Adairsville’s Loren Harris threw a no-hitter Monday as her Lady Tigers shutout region opponent, North Murray, 8-0.
Harris needed only 67 pitches to complete the five-inning no hitter. She struck out four and the Lady Tigers’ defense played well behind her. Adairsville did not commit an error. Only a pair of Mountaineer batters reached base in the contest, both in the top of the second inning when Harris hit a batter and walked one.
Meanwhile, the Lady Tigers’ offense provided six runs in the fourth and fifth frames to end the game in five innings.
Adairsville took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on a two-run home run by Bailey Robinson.
That lead would stand until Emily Collum hit another two-run blast in the fourth frame to give the Lady Tigers a 4-0 advantage.
Adairsville closed out the contest in the bottom of the fifth inning with four more runs.
With Robinson and Morgan DeBoard aboard on singles, Harris doubled in a run. Breeana Wilson reached on an error to drive home another run for a 6-0 lead. Harris and Wilson both later scored on a stolen base play that included a throwing error and Adairsville had an 8-0 victory via the GHSA mercy, run rule.
Adairsville (3-3) continues a busy week on the diamond Tuesday when they host Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe. The Lady Tigers then travel to Murray County Thursday and play in the LFO Invitational Tournament Friday and Saturday.
