The Missy Gators finished with nine hits as a team, taking advantage instead of 20 walks issued by Canton’s pitchers to earn a two-inning run-rule victory.

Shandrea Lockridge doubled and scored two runs, Lexi Kistler went 1-for-2 with a double, two RBIs and two runs scored, and Kellisia Walker doubled and drove in three runs. Lydia Nettles hit a three-run triple as well for the Missy Gators.

Ella Duhon homered, Addison Lindley went 2-for-3 with three RBIs, and Allie Reich doubled and drove in four runs as Germantown (12-6, 5-1 MHSAA Region 4-6A) cruised past Warren Central (8-10-1, 0-6) on Monday.

Germantown scored three runs in the first inning, three more in the third, and eight in the fourth on its way to the five-inning run-rule victory.

Warren Central’s only run came in the top of the fifth inning, when Abby Morgan singled and eventually scored on a fielding error. Morgan’s single was the Lady Vikes’ only hit of the game.

Lindley pitched four innings of no-hit ball for Germantown. She struck out five batters and walked four.
