If you wanted a game that had a little bit of everything, you should have been at the Red Fox softball game Tuesday night. Hartsville hosted South Florence in a huge Region VI contest. Hartsville found themselves in a hole early when the Bruins scored three runs in the top of the third. Hartsville managed to get some hits off Perry (Bruins Pitcher) but could not finish the deal. As the game marched on, Hartsville was looking for that big moment.
The Red Foxes found that moment in the bottom of the seventh inning. Down 4-1, Jamarria Pendergrass opened the attack with a single. After the single, a bunt was set to move the runner over and South Florence threw the ball into right field. Chelsea Ghoens continued the attack and the Red Foxes plated 3 runs to tie the game at 4.
The game stayed scoreless through the eighth inning. In the bottom of the 9th, Jaysha McCollough started on second base and was bunted over on a sacrifice bunt. The next two batters were intentionally walked to load the bases for the Red Foxes. The Bruins managed to get a shallow pop fly. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Kindan Dawson hits a walk-off single earning an amazing Region VI win for the Red Foxes! Alyssa Poston got the win for the Red Foxes by going 9 innings giving up 6 hits, 2 earned runs and 7 strike-outs.
South Florence will host Hartsville on Friday night for game 2 of the region series with first pitch at 6:00pm.
