ST. JOseph — Kailey Hutchins held Tensas Academy to two runs on three hits with a pair of strikeouts and she went 2-for-3 with two runs batted in as the Trinity Episcopal Lady Saints defeated the Tensas Academy Lady Chiefs 7-2 Monday afternoon.

Trinity scored three runs in the top of the second inning off starting pitcher Daley Jordan to take the lead for good. Tensas Academy scored one run in the bottom of the second, but that would be the closest the Lady Chiefs would get.

The Lady Saints put the game away with four runs in the top of the fourth inning to make it a 7-1 ball game. Tensas Academy (6-13) scored its other run in the bottom of the fourth. Hannah Fitt went 2-for-3 with one RBI and Mary Lewis was 2-for-4 for Trinity Episcopal (3-8).

Jordan gave up three runs on six hits with no strikeouts and two walks. Bailey Keyes pitched the final two innings and allowed four runs on five hits.

Due to the threat of rough weather from Tropical Storm Isaac, Trinity’s home game against MAIS District 5-AA opponent Columbia Academy has been delayed until some time next week, head coach Chris Hutchins said.

Also, Tensas Academy head coach Jay James said that the Lady Chiefs’ game at MAIS District 6-A opponent Wilkinson County Christian Academy has been postponed until Thursday, Sept. 6. He added that they will try to host Veritas School for one game at either 4 or 5 p.m. today, and that decision would be made this morning. If that game doesn’t take place today, the Lady Chiefs’ next game will be at Tallulah Academy at 5 p.m. Sept. 4.
