Rhoades, Tigers edge Colts for region win
Taylor Rhoades coaxed a base on balls to start the Tigers’ fifth inning Monday evening. She then stole second base and moved over to third on a bunt by McKenzie Pullam. Two pitches later, Rhoades scored on a wild pitch crossing the plate for the game’s only run as Adairsville held off Coahulla Creek in a Region 6-AAA battle in Tiger Valley, 1-0. Adairsville did not manage a hit in the game, but it didn’t matter. Colts' pitcher and Georgia Tech commit Sophia Voyles tossed a no-hitter and struck out 13. Rhoades tossed a complete game in the circle to go with her go-ahead run. She scattered three hits and a walk in the shutout, fanning a dozen Colts’ batters. Adairsville (6-1, 2-1) travels to Rockmart Tuesday and Lafayette Thursday for two more region contests.
