Bainbridge started hot, scoring three runs in the first inning. Worth County fired back with five in the fifth. The score stayed 5-3 until the end.

“What I like to see and what I saw today was that they didn’t get down when we went down five to three,” said head coach Rex Wade. “They kept on pushing. It just didn’t work out.”

Left-fielder Emma Ryan Shirley brought the first run home for the Lady Cats after a ground-out hit from second-baseman Haisten Wilkenson.

Third-baseman Kylie Miller scored on the next at-bat off a single from right-fielder Emilee Tindell. Tindell finished the game with two hits on three at-bats, one RBI and one scored run.

“Emilee did a great job at the plate,” Wade said,

Tindell scored on the following at-bat thanks to a single ground ball from catcher Abigail Holley and an error from opposing pitcher Summer Gray.

The game stayed 3-0 until the fourth inning, where the Rams answered with five runs. The game would finish 5-3, giving Worth County the win.

“It’s just taking one game at a time,” Wade said. “It’s a long season. We’ve just got to keep pushing forward and make sure we make those adjustments that we’ve been talking about the whole season.
