Ringgold Tigers

The Ringgold Lady Tigers will need one more game to decide their post-season fate.

Ringgold split the first two games in the their best-of-three series at Bremen in the Region 6-AAA tournament on Tuesday, winning Game 1, but falling in Game 2.

Game 3 will be held back in Bremen on Wednesday.

Ringgold 4, Bremen 3

The Lady Devils jumped out to a 2-0 lead after the first inning in the opener, but the Lady Tigers got a solo run in the top of the second before taking the lead with two runs in the third. Both teams tacked on solo runs in the sixth.

Ringgold pounded out 11 hits in the game, including two each by Kaylee Womack, Bailey Farrow and Gracie Morrison. Womack and Morrison each picked up one RBI. Carolyn Hemphill doubled. Riley Nayadley also had an RBI, as did Shelby Cole, who got hers on a solo homer.

Kaylee Phillips picked up the complete game victory, allowing no earned runs on five hits with a walk and a strikeout.

Bremen 8, Ringgold 4

In the nightcap, Bremen - playing as the visiting team - led 6-0 going into the bottom of the fifth when Ringgold struck for four runs to get back in the game. However, the Lady Devils scored twice in the top of the seventh to give themselves some breathing room.

Cole had a three-run homer in the four-run fifth inning. Farrow went 2-for-4, while Phillips and Brooklyn Keith added a double. Phillips took the loss, allowing five earned runs on 10 hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

The winner of Wednesday's game will punch their ticket to the state playoffs and they will also travel to LFO for the region semifinals, which begin with a doubleheader this Saturday.
