Hobby, Tigerette bats down Tullahoma

LEWISBURG — Haylee Hobby kept the base paths clear and the Tigerettes brought out the heavy lumber in a 9-0 thumping of Tullahoma on Tuesday night.
“Haylee has continued to do a great job on the mound for us this year. She places the ball well and invokes many miss hits, allowing our defense to do its job behind her,” Tigerette coach Amy Bonner said.
Five different Tigerettes recorded multi-hit nights, with Demiyah Blackman’s 3-for-4 night being the top mark.
Jessa Lancaster singled in the first at-bat in the bottom of the first frame and later scored on a single to center field by Blackman.
While only plating just one run in the first inning, Marshall County tacked on four more in a breakout second inning.
Kaniyah Taylor safely reached via error and then scored on a single by Ellie Luce.
Luce later scored when Jessa Lancaster clubbed a RBI double to centerfield and then scored on a single by Courtney Lynch.
Leading 4-0 and with a runner in scoring position, Lynch scored the final run of the second on a Lady Wildcat error, bumping the Tigerette lead to 5-0.
Marshall County plated one run in the third and fourth innings, one on a RBI double by Reese Lentz and a seventh run in the fourth inning on another RBI single by Blackman.
The final two runs of the game came via Tullahoma errors in the fifth inning.
With the Tigerettes belting out 14 hits in the blowout, Marshall County connected on three extra base hits, courtesy of Lancaster, Lentz and Blackman.
“As a coaching staff, we have stressed the importance of making adjustments at the plate. As we get deeper into our season, the girls have embraced that philosophy more and more and have done a much better job going with the pitches that are thrown,” Bonner added.
While there was plenty of offense to go around, it was Hobby who was the spark plug on defense.
She twirled a gem from the pitcher’s circle, going the distance and scattering just four hits, all of which were singles.
She also struck out four without allowing a walk.
Marshall County will be back in action with another district matchup Thursday afternoon at Spring Hill.
