It was a true back-and-forth battle between LaGrange and Harris County on Tuesday as the Tigers were just able to escape with an 7-6 walk-off victory in extra innings. 

Chloe Wolfensbarger was the hero for Harris County, delivering a one-run double in the bottom of the eighth inning to end the game. 

LaGrange had its chances to win on the road. The Grangers led 6-4 in the bottom of the seventh and got two outs from victory, but Linsey Brown hit a two-run homer to get the home crowd off their feet and tie the game. 



The Grangers started off the game on the right foot, scoring two runs in the top of the first courtesy of a one-run singles from Jasia Swanson and Shelby Siggers. 

The Tigers quickly struck back with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first to tie the game. 

LaGrange would once again take the lead in the third inning, scoring three runs. Hudson Wood got the action started with a one-run single. Siggers drove in her second run of the day with a single and another run scored on the play on an error to give the Grangers a 5-2 lead. 

The Tigers trimmed the Granger lead down to just one run in the bottom of the fourth. 

LaGrange extended the lead back to two runs on a one-run single from Abby McGill, but could not get a third run on the play as Tatiana Dudley was called out at the plate. 

McGill led the way for the Grangers offense, going 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Siggers and Wood had two hits each while Kimberly Reynolds, Carolyne Garcia, Tatum Nation, Harlee Overton and Swanson all had a hit apiece. 

In an amazing feat, Zoe Thompson has pitched in every game for the Grangers this season and got the start on the mound once again on Tuesday. 



LaGrange is now 6-4 on the season as its three game win streak was snapped. The Grangers are still a perfect 6-0 in region play and will have a chance to keep its undefeated streak alive in the region when they travel to Fayette County on Thursday.
