Tigers Knock Off Novinger 11-6 in Tourney Action



Jacob Hull ines a base hit during action Tuesday night versus Linn County.


Scotland County knocked off Novinger 11-6 in tournament action in Unionville on Saturday. SCR-I rode a big inning to the win in the Tri-Rivers Tournament.

The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Harley Stone singled and moved into scoring position with a stolen base and a balk. He crossed the plate on a sacrifice fly by Andrew Mathes.

Mathes provided plenty more fireworks. The senior third baseman blasted a two-run home run during a huge second inning that saw the Tigers tack on eight runs. Ben Shannan started the inning with a base hit. Jacob Blessing followed with a walk before Jacob Hull loaded the bases with a single. Tyler Buford drove in a pair of runs with a base hit. After Zach Miller was hit by a pitch, Cordie Kigar delivered an RBI double. Stone followed with a bases-loaded double that drove in three more runs. Mathes concluded the outburst, hitting his home run to make the score 9-1.

Novinger trimmed the deficit to 9-4 with three runs in the third inning off Shannan.

Mathes gave his team some more breathing room with his second home run of the contest, another two-run shot to make it 11-4.

Novinger plated two more runs but it wasn't enough as SCR-I posted the 11-6 win in four innings of play.

Shannan improved to 2-0 on the mound. He worked four innings, allowing six runs, just two earned, on five hits and seven walks while striking out three.

Mathes went 2-2 on the day with two home runs and five RBIs. Stone was 2-3 with a double and three RBIs. Kigar was also 2-3 with an RBI double and Hull and Buford both went 2-2.
