The team scored three more runs throughout the fifth and six innings, giving the Lady Cats a 10-2 victory.

Delbrey led the team in pitching. She allowed two hits and two runs over four innings, while striking out nine.

Warner Robins’ number 12 took the loss. She lasted five innings, allowing eight hits and ten runs, while striking out two.

Keyleigh Brinson, Halle Cannon, Emily McCullough, Brown, Alaina Cox, Bibby, Myasia Henry and Delbrey all collected one hit to lead the team and Cannon made the most plays with 14.

With this win under their belt, the team headed into the second game full of confidence. Their confidence paid off, as they took home a 10-0 win and shutout Warner Robins again.

The Lady Cats got things moving in the first inning, when Delbrey hit a double on a 2-2 count, bringing in one run. The batting only continued to pick up steam. In the third inning, the Lady Cats tallied five runs. Cannon hit a home run and T. Brown, C. Brown and Brinson all had RBIs.

Delbrey once again led the team to victory, going five innings, allowing zero runs on one hit, striking out 14 and walking zero.

The team not only was hot at the plate, but also sure- handed in the field, not committing a single error.

With these wins, the team is now playoff bound.

They will play Whitewater in Fayetteville on Tuesday at 5 and 7 p.m.

Bryant is excited and said the team has their mind in the right place.

“Anything is possible, we are hoping to see everyone in Columbus again this year,” Bryant finished.
