In Tuesday’s slate of make-up games, Union County earned three big wins as host team Ingomar, the Myrtle Hawks and New Albany Bulldogs all secured a win in summer league play.

Ingomar 11, Potts Camp 2

The Falcons opened their first game of the day in a big way, scoring five runs at the bottom of the first inning, including a double by Lindsay Hall that brought in the fourth run of the inning by Erin Wall.

Ingomar put in another four runs inside the second inning, led by base hits from Sara McDonald and Ashley Forrester.

A third hit from Carson Grisham loaded up the bases for the Lady Falcons in time for a sacrifice hit from Alex Wilhite that scored one and a single by Maggie Smithey to add two more.

Gara Beth Self completed the run total with a single of her own that brought Smithey home.

Potts Camp scored their two runs in the top of the third inning, both earned on a bases loaded double.

Ingomar added two more runs, one in the third off a fly-out RBI for Hall and in the fifth with a run home off an error at first base that closed the game.

Wall logged the win with three innings of work, while Wilhite pitched two innings in relief.

Wall struck out three and gave up one hit, with Wilhite struck out four on one hit.

Myrtle 18, Tremont 2

A trio Ingomar players stepped up for a Tremont squad during the second contest of the day, offering three base hits that scored two runs for the Lady Eagles as Myrtle cruised to a 17-2 win.

Eleven batters went to the plate for the Hawks in the opening inning to score seven runs off five singles and a triple from Lauren Coggin.

Myrtle added nine more runs after a scoreless second inning, aided by a two RBI single from Kellan Tanner and a triple by Amber Cook that scored a run from Courtney Bingham.

Ingomar’s Wilhite, Grisham and Abby Deaton all put in base hits for Tremont in the bottom of the inning before Myrtle added a final two runs in the fourth – both earned from an inside the park home run from Heather Smith that also brought Ashton Hogue across the plate.

New Albany 11, Potts Camp 3

The Lady Bulldogs earned the route of the Cardinals after a 2-2 tie in the first inning with a seven run showing in the third.

Aravia Foote’s bases loaded triple scored three, while a single from Carley Hill added another.
