Softball round up: See what teams won recent games
NATCHEZ — Heavy rain and strong thunderstorms that hit the Miss-Lou between last Thursday and Monday afternoon has put a damper on the Natchez-Adams Girls Softball League.
Two games were played last Thursday, but the third one was rained out. Then all of last Friday’s games as well as Monday’s games were dealt the same fate. And that resulted in six games being played Tuesday afternoon — two 18-and-under age division games on Field A, two 11-and-under games on Field B and two 5-and-under games involving the same teams on Field C.
In the first 18-and-under game, Alexander Body Shop held on for a 17-12 win over Eagle Electric. Whitney Ballard was the winning pitcher and Christian Jones took the loss. Despite both teams putting up double-digit runs, there were no extra-base hits and no multiple hitters.
In the second 18-and-under game, Reagan Diesel shut out Super Auto Glass 18-0. Rebecca Ratcliff picked up the win on the mound while Anna Grace Britt suffered the loss. Reagan Diesel did not have any extra-base hits nor any players with two or more base hits.
The first game of the day in 11-and-under action saw Natchez Market pound out eight extra-base hits in a 12-5 win over State Farm. Madison Green was the winning pitcher and Wells Linton was charged with the loss.
Emily Carol Loy led Natchez Market at the plate by going 3-for-3 with two doubles and a triple. Halle Smith was 3-for-3 with a double and Harper Carter was 2-for-2 with a double and a triple. Greene helped her cause with a double and Sophia Carter also had a double.
In the nightcap, Stewart Realty defeated Merit Health 5-1. Revin Tomecko got the win and Bella Gallardo had a double for Stewart Realty. Anna Arthur took the loss despite going 2-for-2 at the plate.
The two 5-and-under games on Field C turned out to be a doubleheader between Scott’s Welding and Dairy Queen, with Scott’s Welding winning both games.
In the first game, Scott’s Welding shut out Dairy Queen 8-0. And in the second game, Scott’s Welding beat Dairy Queen 9-3. Maddi Perry had a double for Scott’s Welding.
In one of the games played on July 2, Good Hope Timber defeated Concordia Bank 15-2 in 8-and-under action on Field B.
Addie House went 3-for-4 with a double and a home run to lead Good Hope Timber at the plate. Aubrey Oglesby went 3-for-3 with two doubles while Camille Anderson and Kennedy Mason each went 3-for-3 with a triple. Sadie Donald and Savannah Pace each were 3-for-3.
Aubrey Weadock led Concordia Bank at the plate as she was 3-for-3 with a double. Karlee Ann Harveston was 2-for-2.
