Atmore Babe Ruth Baseball lost a race against time Monday at Tom Byrne Park, when a tight game between the Poarch team and the Greenlawn Pharmacy team was called due to darkness from the lack of lights still plaguing the Babe Ruth field at the park.
Greenlawn led 9-7 in the bottom of the fifth inning when the game was called. Elliott Faircloth and Ben Hess led the way for Greenlawn, both scoring three runs on the day. Faircloth knocked a home run over the left field fence in the third inning, and Hess had a double in the fourth.
Blake Walker also hit a homerun during the fourth inning; and Tyler Hochstetler scored another run for Greenlawn in the fourth. Hunter Madden and Cody Vickery led Poarch on the day, both scoring two runs. Madden added a double. Michael Mitchell, Jacob Packard, and Nicholas Linam added the other three Poarch runs.
Huddle House 6
Runs-aplenty were scored Tuesday night at Tom Byrne Park when Pepsi-Cola of Atmore's team and the Huddle House squad got together. Huddle House led 4-0 early, but three Pepsi runs in the third and fourth innings; and four more in the sixth gave them the win. Skyler Peacock and Stephen Yoder each scored three runs for Pepsi.
Peacock was walked three times; and Yoder punctuated things with a homerun in the third inning. Ethan Brooks scored two more runs and Dustin Rolin and Jessie Everette scored the other two Pepsi runs.
Lawrence Thomas led Huddle House on the day, scoring two runs and driving a double and a triple. Matthew McGhee, M.J. White, Kyle Chafin, and Kenneth Staples scored the other four Huddle House runs.
