NATCHEZ — Porter’s Chapel Academy scored four runs to lead off the game, but Adams County Christian School responded in a big way as the Rebels rallied to defeat the Eagles 11-6 on senior night Thursday afternoon.
ACCS scored one run each in the bottom of the first and second innings with Porter’s Chapel scoring one run in the top of the second to make it a 5-2 game. Then the Rebels took the lead for good thanks to a four-run rally in the bottom of the third inning for a 6-5 lead, and they plated four more runs just an inning later for a 10-5 advantage.
Brandon Ross settled down after that rough first inning and that allowed ACCS to get back in the game. He gave up five runs and struck out seven in four innings to get the win. Wade Simpson was credited with the save after he held Porter’s Chapel to just one run and struck out four in three innings.
