TIBBEE — The name of the game was scoring runs.
The Poplar Springs Blues used four runs in the ninth inning, holding off a late Tibbee rally, to claim a 13-8 win in the Tombigbee Waterway Baseball League Sunday at Roundhead Stadium in Tibbee. Despite the loss, the Ramblers still have a chance for a first-place finish in the South Division with a win against the Snowtown Stars Sunday, July 27 at Snowtown.
Zach Scott, the Blues’ starting pitcher, threw eight innings, scattering nine hits and fanning 10 Ramblers. Scott picked up the win.
Nathan Willers provided eight and 1/3 innings as the Ramblers’ starting pitcher but was handed the loss. Willers surrendered 14 hits and struck out six.
Trailing 9-4 in the eighth, the Ramblers used a four-run rally, starting with lead-off hits from Austin Smith and Cody Allsup. Nate Pugh loaded the bases with a walk before catcher Ethan Willers raked a two-run double into right field. Nathan Willers finished the damage with his two-RBI single with one out in the frame.
