Lower State Bracket, Game 2 at Lexington, 5/6

A big first inning propelled Lexington to a 10-7 win over River Bluff on Saturday afternoon and sent them to the Lower State Championship on their home field Wednesday evening.  They improved their season record to 22-7 and have now won 9 straight games.

The Wildcats scored 8 times on 4 singles, 2 doubles, 2 walks, and a hit batsman as they sent 11 hitters to the plate in the first.

The teams traded runs in the third inning to make the score 9-1 after 3.

River Bluff drew within 5 runs as they scored 3 in the fifth inning on 3 singles, a double, and a base on balls.  Both teams added a run in the 6th.  Headed to the final frame, it was Lexington with a 10-5 lead.

The Gators added their final runs on a 2-run homer off the bat of Jackson Hannon and the final score was 10-7.

River Bluff drops to the loser’s bracket and will play Monday evening in an elimination game at Dutch Fork.  The winner of that game will play at Lexington on Wednesday and will need to beat the Wildcats twice to advance.  Dutch Fork eliminated Summerville on Saturday.
