Motes' RBI, Baker's four-hitter lifts Lady Cats to win at Lassiter

Allyssa Motes drove in the game-winning run with an infield hit in the top of the sixth inning to lift visiting Woodland past Lassiter Friday night 2-1 in a non-region game in Marietta.

Morgan Bailey walked, then Ansley Evans and Morgan Cooper followed with singles to load the bases and set up Motes’ go-ahead RBI in the sixth.

Woodland took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on an RBI single by Bella Carnes, but Lassiter tied the score with a run in the fourth inning.

Lady Cats’ pitcher Lainey Baker struck out eight and scattered four hits and two walks to limit the host Trojans to only one, unearned run.

Woodland totaled eight hits from eight different players. The only extra base hit was a double by Brianna Hill. Carnes, Bailey, Evans, Cooper, Motes (photo), Kailey Baker, and Hannah Miller added one hit apiece.

The loss leaves Lassiter with a 16-7 season mark.

Woodland finished the regular season with a 16-10 record and the Lady Cats enter the Region 7-AAAAA tournament with a 12-4 region mark. As the No. 3-seed, Woodland will host the double-elimination tournament that begins Tuesday. While Carrollton and East Paulding will play a best-of-three series to determine the region champion and runner-up, the remaining teams will be at Woodland to vie for the No.3 and No. 4 seeds heading into the state tournament.
