Logan Elm erupted for four runs in the fourth inning on Friday to take control of a non-league game on its way to a 6-3 win over Little Miami at the Lebanon Invitational.
Addie Smith led off the home fourth with a single to center, advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Peyton Richendollar and was joined on the base pads when Lynsay VanHoose coaxed a walk.
Meredith Jarvis followed with a two-run double to left to knock in both runners and give the Braves a 4-2 lead.
Jarvis advanced to third on a ground out by Jacie Clifton and scored on a single to center off the bat of Sadie Binkley.
Courtesy runner Katrina Wilson advanced to third on a single to right by Taylor Fowler and scored when Ryleigh Wolfe lined a single to right.
Wolfe went a perfect 2-for-2, drove in a run and scored, VanHoose posted a 2-for-3 ledger and scored, and Taylor Fowler was 2-for-3 and scored to lead the Braves.
Binkley allowed four hits and three runs (one earned) in the complete game win. The freshman right-hander walked three batters and struck out 10.
The Braves (4-3), who were run-ruled by Centerville in their final game at the invitational, resume Mid-State League Buckeye Division on Monday at Liberty Union.
