CHAPMANVILLE The Lady Tigers plated three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to break an 8-8 tie and rally from a five-run deficit to defeat Wyoming East 11-8 on Monday evening at Ronnie Mule Ooten Field.
In the decisive three-run eighth inning, Lakin Parks scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error by the left fielder, Brooke Christian crossed the plate on a throwing error by the catcher and Erin Adkins delivered a run-scoring single to complete the comeback.
Atwood worked around a two-out walk in the seventh and picked up the win for the Lady Tigers after working six innings in relief of starting pitcher LaTosha Perry. Atwood allowed four runs on seven hits, walked three and struck out five in the circle for the Lady Tigers. Perry allowed four runs on four hits, walked two and struck out one in one inning.
Wyoming East (5-4) evened the score in the top of the sixth as Carley Raye doubled with two outs to even the score at 8.
Wyoming East plated three runs in the first and one run in each of the second, third and fourth innings to jump out to a 6-1 lead.
Andrea Laxton started the first inning scoring for the Lady Warriors with a single and Alivia Monroe followed with a two-run single. Chapmanville (4-2) scored a run in the bottom of the first when Emma Muncy stole home as part of a delayed double steal.
Kayley Bane had a run-scoring single in the second, Emma Simpson an RBI single in the third and Laxton a run-scoring single in the fourth to give the Lady Warriors a 6-1 lead.
With the Lady Tigers trailing 6-1 in the bottom of the fourth, Chapmanville plated four runs to cut the deficit to 6-5. Adkins singled to start the inning and Altizer walked before Atwood's double scored Adkins from second. Hannah Miller followed with a single to score Altizer. Atwood came around to score on an error by the catcher and Muncy's sacrifice fly scored Miller.
The Lady Tigers plated three runs in the fifth and took its first lead of the contest. Adkins got the inning started with a two-out single off the hand of the pitcher Payton Brehm. Brehm fielded the comebacker and attempted to throw to first, however, she was unable to grip the softball and left the game due to swelling in her pitching hand.
Lindsey Mullins replaced Brehm in the circle and allowed a two-out single to Altizer before Atwood cleared the bases with a three-run home run over the left center field fence to give Chapmanville an 8-6 lead.
Brehm allowed six runs on seven hits, walked six and struck out three in 4 2/3 innings. Mullins suffered the loss in the circle after allowing five runs on five hits, walking one and striking out one in 1 1/3 innings for Wyoming East.
