Two-run home run leads Trinity to victory

VIDALIA — Mallory Lancaster’s two-run home run highlighted a four-run rally in the bottom of the fifth inning as the Trinity Episcopal Lady Saints held on for a 6-5 win over the Porter’s Chapel Academy Lady Eagles Thursday afternoon at the Concordia Recreation District 3 Complex.

Both teams had identical scoring over the first three innings — one run in the first inning, none in the second and none in the third. Then Porter’s Chapel appeared to take control with a three-run rally in the top of the fourth inning for a 4-1 lead.

However, Trinity finally got its bats going. The Lady Saints plated one run in the bottom of the fourth to make it a 4-2 game before going ahead 6-4 in the bottom of the fifth. The Lady Eagles scored one run in the top of the fifth, but Kailey Hutchins closed the door on them to preserve the win. Kailey Hutchins allowed five runs, none earned, on nine hits and one walk with two strikeouts. Both Lancaster and Micheala Hutchins went 2-for-3.

Trinity Episcopal (9-10) next plays at 11 a.m. Saturday at Centreville Academy.

Franklin County 6

BROOKHAVEN — Catherine Shell and Jada Henderson both went deep for Brookhaven High School as the Lady Panthers defeated the Franklin County Lady Bulldogs Thursday afternoon.

Sierra Bethley hit a three-run home run in the top of the third inning for the Lady Bulldogs that cut Brookhaven’s lead to 8-4. The Lady Bulldogs scored their first run in the top of the second inning and they added two runs in the top of the fifth.
