Tigers edged by Phoenix
The Adairsville Tigers held leads of 4-2 after two innings and 6-4 through five innings Thursday night, but visiting Sonoraville escaped with an 8-7 Region 6AAA win after posting four runs in the top of the sixth inning.
Grant Clark was a complete-game winning pitcher for the Phoenix. He allowed 13 hits, a walk, and seven earned runs with seven strikeouts while his offense produced just enough to top the Tigers.
Taylor Whitley (2 IP, 4R, 2ER, 3H, 3BB, 2K) suffered the pitching loss for Adairsville in relief of starter Sam Seaman (5 IP, 3ER, 8H, 3BB, 4K).
Matthew Vincent, Gavin Phillips, Gage Soulios, and Clark had two hits each to lead Sonoraville’s ten-hit attack. The Phoenix also stole six bases in the contest.
Kyler Pelfrey (RBI) and Noah Dutton (3 RBIs) led the Tigers at the plate with three hits each.
Whitley finished with two hits and two RBIs. Dylan Hightower, Corey Nation, B.J. Roper, Hunter Hice (RBI), and Seaman had one hit apiece.
Sonoraville is now 9-12 overall and 4-10 in Region 6AAA.
Adairsville (9-17, 4-11) hosts Bremen Tuesday, Calhoun Thursday, and travels to LFO next Friday.
