in­ning. Un­able to re­gain his com­po­sure, Gla­di­a­tor start­ing pitcher Eric Gordy walked in a bases loaded run be­fore giv­ing up an RBI sin­gle to Beau Thomas.

“It was a great win for us to­day,” said Al­covy coach Joe Mob­ley. “ Our bats were work­ing, and our de­fense made great strides.”

With the lead in hand af­ter three in­nings of play, the Tigers didn’t stop there.

In the bot­tom of the fourth, Al­covy got things rolling as Cole Log­gins opened the in­ning with a dou­ble. Log­gins even­tu­ally scored on a wild pick off at­tempt, mak­ing it 5-1.

Af­ter a walk to Roberts and a sin­gle by Fan­ning, it was In­gram who came call­ing once again with run­ners on first and third. Not to be out­done by his third in­ning hero­ics, In­gram belted a dou­ble to the cen­ter­field wall, plat­ing Roberts and Fan­ning to give the Tigers a 7-1 lead head­ing to the fifth.

While the Al­covy bats re­mained hot, Jack­son, a sopho­more, made the mound his home, al­low­ing just one run on three hits in six in­nings of work.

“It was cold out there, so it was hard to get a grip,” Jack­son said. “I wanted to work inside and try to jam them hard.”

In an at­tempt to drive the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin, Al­covy got a run in the fifth off an RBI sin­gle by Log­gins that scored Thomas. While in the sixth the Tigers added two more in­sur­ance runs with a two-run dou­ble by Fan­ning, seal­ing the deal for Al­covy’s school-record fifth win of the sea­son.

Al­covy vis­its Cedar Shoals at 5:30 p.m. to­day.
