CALHOUN CITY - It appeared to be the rematch everyone was looking for as the Wildcats answered every Falcon surge, but in the end Ingomar was able to pull away for a 13-3 win in six innings on Tuesday.
Ingomar (9-2, 6-0) got on the board first when Preston Broom barely snuck a one-out home run over the left field fence, but Calhoun City (6-6, 4-1) answered when Tyler Gray scored on a throwing error to tie the game at 1-1 through one complete inning of play.
The Falcons scored three runs on three hits and one City error in the top of the third to take a 4-1 lead, but once again the Wildcats had an answer.
Josh Warren led off the bottom of the inning with a single and advance to second on a throwing error before being pushed over to third on a sacrifice bunt by Tyler Gray and scoring on a sacrifice fly to right from Raheem Roberson. Jarvis Rounds ripped a single up the middle and stole second to get into scoring position before racing home on a single through the gap by Charlie Easley.
Unfortunately for Calhoun City that would be as close they would get for the rest of the night. The Falcons scored five runs in the top of the sixth to invoke the 10-run mercy rule after the Cats went three-up, three-down in the bottom half.
Calhoun City only managed four hits with Warren, Gray, Rounds, and Easley all singled in the contest. Ingomar totaled 12 hits off three different Wildcat pitchers.
Josh Hodges picked the win for Ingomar going five complete innings giving up two earned runs on four hits and four walks while striking out seven. Roberson was the pitcher of record for City giving up seven earned runs on nine hits, one hit batter, and one error while striking out two batters in four and two-thirds innings of work.
Calhoun City will travel to Ingomar tomorrow night with weather permitting. Any fans traveling to the game are encouraged to allot themselves extra time getting to the ballpark as the Lady Falcons will be hosting the Union County Softball Tournament on Friday - parking is limited.
