Tigers snap skid with region win at Sonoraville

Evan Sanders went 4-for-4 with a double and three RBIs as Adairsville won at Sonoraville Friday night, 8-6.

The Adairsville Tigers earned a series split with a win at Sonoraville Friday night, 8-6.

The Region 6-AAA victory came on the heels of a 4-2 home loss to the Phoenix Thursday and snapped a six-game skid for the Tigers.

Adairsville posted single runs in the first, third, fifth, and sixth innings to build a 4-3 advantage through six frames. Sonoraville scored twice in the first inning and added a run in the fifth before an eventful seventh inning.

In the final inning, Adairsville plated four runs to lead 8-3 then held off a rally by the Phoenix in the bottom of the inning to win by two runs. Tigers’ pitcher Peyton Bowen (1 IP, 3ER, 5H, 1K) induced a bases loaded groundout to cease the Phoenix threat.

Jack Nelson (6 IP, 3R, 0ER, 3H, 4BB, 8K) started on the bump for the Tigers and picked up the win.

Evan Sanders went 4-for-4 with a double and three RBIs to help lead the Adairsville offense. Chris Roper followed with three hits including one double. Braden Powell reached base four times with two hits, two walks, and one RBI. Easton Elrod and Brenden Carroll contributed one hit and one RBI apiece while Landon O’Neal drove in a run with a fielder’s choice.

The loss dropped Sonoraville to 13-7 on the season and 7-4 in 6-AAA.

Adairsville (9-10, 4-6) continues region play Tuesday at Ringgold in a 5:55 p.m. first pitch.
