Tigers club four homers to defeat Falcons

Circleville smacked four home runs on Tuesday and rallied from an early deficit to defeat host Fairfield Union 13-7 in a Mid-State League Buckeye Division game.

Play was suspended on Friday due to inclement weather with Fairfield Union leading 3-2 in the top of the fourth.

Cara Cooper took her spot on first base after reaching on an infield single to second.

Cooper stole second and third and was joined on the base pads when Ella Michael worked a walk.

Gabby McConnell then lofted a sacrifice fly to left to knock in Cooper and knot the score.

Katie Folkes followed by smacking a 2-2 pitch over the center field fence to put the Tigers ahead 5-3.

Michael then deposited a 2-0 pitch over the center field fence.

Following back-to-back singles from McConnell and Folkes, Gracie Riddick hit a two-run single to right to put the Tigers ahead 10-3.
