Chase Jaye led the Tigers on the day, scoring three runs. Jaylen Henry, James Dean, Dustin Wilson, and Colby White all scored two runs; and Tacorian Brown and Blake Quimby added the other Tiger runs.
Joseph Parker and Tee Howard led the Rangers in a losing effort, each scoring two runs. Gavin Salter, Tywan Dixon, Dalton Phillips, A.J. Matthews, Austin Albritton, and Ryan McGhee added the other Ranger runs.
The United Bank Warriors continued their winning ways in the nightcap Monday as they defeated the First National Bank Athletics by a score of 9-1.
