LEWISBURG — An early spark and a seven-run fifth-inning helped the Marshall County Tigers shrug off the visiting Wayne County Wildcats on Tuesday night in a 12-5 victory.
Tristan Griggs got the 11-hit night started on a two-run blast in the bottom of the first inning.
Marshall County went on to add two more runs in the second frame before Wayne County responded with a five-run effort in the top of the fourth inning.
After the sudden outburst in the fourth, the Tigers capped the game by rattling off eight unanswered runs, including a seven-spot in the bottom of the fifth.
In total, Marshall County hammered out 11 hits, with Grigg’s two-run shot in the first being the biggest hit of the night.
