Two days, two wins. Even better, two Region 4-AAAA wins. (Actually, throw in a 7-0 win over Westside Sept. 9, and its three straight over division opponents.)
That was Perry’s pleasure Monday and Tuesday. The Lady Panthers beat Howard 12-1 on Monday and and Baldwin 11-3 Tuesday.
They improved to 5-2 in the region, 9-3 overall. The Lady Huskies fell to 4-3, 7-4 and Lady Braves, 2-6, 5-8. All are currently chasing West Laurens, 9-0, 13-4.
The game against Howard went five innings. Perry out-hit it 11-2. Chloe Davey played a big role on offense. She went 4-4, drove in three runs and scored three more. Ava Garrett was also 2-4 with an RBI and two scored. The game went five innings.
Baldwin also went seven, but it took until the bottom of the fourth for the Lady Panthers to make some big noise. They scored nine that inning – one in the second and one in the third.
They out-hit the Lady Braves 11-3. Davey was 2-3 with a walk. She drove in one and scored once. Garrett was 2-3 with a run scored, Reagan Hughes 2-4 with two drive in and two scored and Ashlyhn Alke 1-2 with two walks, two driven in and two scored.
Ashley Kay Moon got back-to-back wins. She surrendered just two hits in five innings to Howard and gave up just three hits in four innings against Baldwin. She struck out five Lady Huskies and four Lady Braves.
Elsewhere, Kasey Gibson had a five-RBI day to help lead Veterans past Warner Robins 9-1. The Lady Warhawks needed just four innings to take care of their Region 1-AAAAA/cross-town rivals.
They scored four in the first and second and one in the fourth while out-hitting the Demonettes 8-5.
Gibson, one of her hits a double, finished 2-3 and also scored twice.
Also, Madison Bunnell was 2-3 with an RBI, Avery Smith 2-3 with two driven in and Kiley Knight 2-2.
