Leading the way offensively for DHS was Bart Pettus with a two-run double, Moody with a two-run double, and Colby Roberts with two suicide-squeezes, which plated two runs.

Although the Tigers escaped with a one-run victory, DHS struck out 16 times in the game.

“We just tried to pull off the ball,” DHS head coach James Moody said.

“We didn’t make any adjustments at the plate until late.

But they did find a way to battle back and win.”

With the victory, DHS moves to 8-4 overall on the season and continued action last night against Oxford in the ‘Lake Martin Classic.’

The Tigers will be back in action again today as they play at 10:00 a.m. before playing their next game of the day at 2:30 p.m.

Both games will be held at the Alexander City SportsPlex.
