Tigers victorious again in Fairfield County

Circleville traveled to Fairfield County for a third consecutive evening on Thursday and returned home with its third straight win, topping Bloom-Carroll 9-1.

The Tigers scored three runs in the fourth to take a 4-1 lead.

Chandler Hayes had an RBI single to center in the frame and she eventually scored when Cara Cooper lined a two-run homer over the left field fence.

Circleville scored three more runs in the sixth to expand its advantage to 7-1.

Hayes opened the inning with a single to center, stole second, advanced to third when Claire Davis reached on an error by the center fielder and scored when Cooper lined a single to left.

Ella Michael reached on an error by the third baseman that allowed Davis to score, and Cooper came around to score on a sacrifice fly to left off the bat of Gabby McConnell.

Cooper was 3-for-4 with five RBI and three runs scored, McConnell followed by going 2-for-4 with two RBI and Hayes contributed a 2-for-5 evening with an RBI and three runs scored.

Audrey Cowdery allowed six hits and an earned run in a complete game effort to earn the win. She walked two and struck out two.

The Tigers (15-5, 8-3) try to complete the Fairfield County second round sweep on Friday when they travel to Liberty Union.
