Tigers Rally To Post Fifth Straight Victory
Scotland County's four-game winning streak looked in jeopardy early on Thursday night at Tiger field in Memphis, but a big fourth inning helped SCR-I rally past Schuyler County for a 12-4 victory.

Scotland County exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the fourth, sending 15 batters to the plate. The Rams pitchers struggled with wildness, walking 10 in the collapse. SCR-I had just two hits in the inning, a double by Cordie Kigar and single off the bat of Dakota Wells.
Shannan blanked the Rams over his final four innings of work, finishing off the complete game victory. He allowed four runs, three earned, on five hits while walking three and striking out nine.
Sabe Sears finished the game 1-1 with three walks and two runs scored. Bondurant was 1-4 with three RBI. Wells and Kigar both drove in a pair of runs while Andrew Mathes was 1-2 with three runs scored.
