The Catoosa County News - - COMMENTARY - By Scott Herpst

It’s been a tough past two nights for the Ringgold Lady Tigers, who dropped back-to­back road games at Adairsville and North Mur­ray.

Adairsville 8, Ringgold 5

Last Wed­nes­day, the Blue-and-White scored two runs in both the sixth and sev­enth in­nings to forces ex­tras, but gave up three runs in the bot­tom of the 10th to lose the Re­gion 6-AAA cross­over game.

Ringgold had 17 hits. Ri­ley Nayadley had four of them, in­clud­ing two dou­bles, while Shelby Cole was 4-for-5 with a double and a run scored.

Kaylee Wo­mack had two hits with a double and knocked in a run. Brook­lyn Keith and Am­ber Gainer each had two hits, while Carolyn Hem­phill also had an RBI.

Kaylee Phillips took the loss. She threw nine in­nings, giv­ing up 13 hits and seven runs, though only two were earned as the Lady Tigers hurt them­selves with five er­rors. She walked three and struck out three. Keith and Hem­phill also pitched for Ringgold.

North Mur­ray 6, Ringgold 2

The bad luck con­tin­ued for the Blue­and-White on Thurs­day with a sub­re­gion loss in Chatsworth.
