It was a 3-2 ball game before the massive 7 run 6th inning from the Patriots. SW Dekalb got the scoring early in the first inning with a single from Dover on a bunt that eventually lead to an Acie single that drove her in to take the lead. After a double from Syerra Palmer in the 3rd inning Shaniah Moore came to the plate and drove her in on an error to the pitcher. After a stolen base later and a sac bunt Moore advanced to third. Stephens then drove her in on a ground out to shortstop. After a leadoff single in the 4th inning from Alayna Crutchfield she was later brought in with a 1 out single up the middle from Jordan Wilson. After a few errors in the bottom of the 4th SW Dekalb pushed one across to make it a 3-2 game. Then the big 6th inning happened. Callwood got it started with a single to right followed by the big blow in the inning off the bat of Caldwell her first homerun of the season. Jordan Wilson then scored on a double from Syerra Palmer. Then after loading the bases up with 2 outs Alayna Crutchfield tripled in the right center gap to clear the bases. The last blow came from the player that started the inning Callwood as she doubled home Crutchfield to make it a 10-2 game. SW Dekalb would come back with 3 runs in the final 2 innings, but it wasn’t enough as the Patriots rolled. Callwood lead the team with a 4-4 day while Crutchfield, Wilson, and Palmer all had 2 hit days. Hodges threw her second complete game on the day and got the win while only giving up 2 earned runs. The Patriots improve to 7-2 on the year and will go into their big region 3 matchup with the undefeated Evans Knights. Its a battle of titans in region 3 that could very well shape region seedings going into the region playoffs at the end of the month.
