Kaylyn Anders pounded a three-run homer over the right-center field fence in Saturday’s consolation final at the Knox County Tourney.

The consolation title of Saturday’s Knox County softball tournament slipped away late from Scotland County as the Lady Tigers’ bats fell silent over the final three innings of a 6-4 loss to Louisiana.

The Lady Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first with a pair of hits and a base on balls.

Two out singles by Ashleigh Creek and Stevi See in the bottom of the frame allowed SCR-I to knot the score at 1-1. Pinch runner Haley Darcy stole third and came in to score on a throwing error.

An SCR-I error allowed Louisiana to regain the lead in the top of the second without the courtesy of a hit.

The Lady Tigers erased the 2-1 deficit with one swing of the bat in the bottom of the third when Kaylyn Anders crushed a three-run homer to plate Katie Feeney who had singled and Darcy, who was running for Creek who reached on an error.

But the 4-2 lead would not hold up. Louisiana scored two runs in the fifth, again taking advantage of two costly SCR-I fielding miscues.

Then in the sixth Lindsay blasted a two-run homer to give the Lady Bulldogs the 6-4 victory.

Creek was saddled with the loss, allowing six runs, but just one earned, on five hits while striking out five.

See was 2-3 at the plate and Anders went 1-2 with a home run and Julie Long was 1-1 with a double.

Scotland County falls to 2-4 on the season with the loss.
