After a big win over No. 10 Calhoun in the Region 6-AAA opener on Wednesday, the No. 3-ranked Ringgold Tigers kept it rolling by blanking rival LFO on Thursday before coming from behind to take down upset-minded Adairsville on Friday.
Ringgold 10, LFO 0
The Tigers busted out the big sticks against the Warriors, belting homers in three straight innings in the run-rule victory in Fort Oglethorpe.
Andre Tarver hit one in the four-run second inning. Noah Parrish went yard as part of a three-run third and a Tyler Nichols blast in the fourth accounted for half of the two runs in the frame.
Tarver finished 2-for-3 with four RBIs. Daulton Schley was also 2-for-3 and knocked in one run. Holden Tucker added an RBI-double and Nathan Camp also doubled in the win.
Tucker also got the win on the hill, throwing five innings of one-hit ball. He walked just one and struck out eight LFO hitters.
Garren Mauldin suffered the loss. He lasted just two innings, allowing six runs - five earned - on four hits and three walks. He finished with four strikeouts. Jake Bass had the lone hit for the Warriors.
Ringgold 8, Adairsville 5
The Tigers played a little more long ball back at home on Friday as Tarver launched another homer and Nichols was 3-for-3 with another dinger and three RBIs.
Adairsville led 4-2 after three complete, but Ringgold (12-3, 3-0) would score six times in their final three at-bats.
Andrew Ghormley got the win for Ringgold, while Ammon Murphy collected a save.
Garrett Mishoe had a two-run homer for Adairsville (3-8, 0-2).
Ringgold will host North Murray in a big early-season 6-AAA contest Tuesday at 5:55 p.m. The Mountaineers (8-3) are the only other team still unbeaten in region play
