As it happens, the two teams were matched up against each other Tuesday and the Tigers prevailed, 3-1, to tie North Murray in the standings

Sean McDermott got the start for Adairsville and pitched four scoreless innings, allowed three hits and struck out four Mountaineers.

Cody Melton and Hunter Smith came in on relief and combined to allow one run in the final three innings to secure the win.

At the plate, Adairsville outhit North Murray 8-4. Smith had two of those hits while Tyler Washington and Jacob Smith each had an RBI.

Washington scored the first run of the game in the first inning when he walked and came around to score on an error.

Washington then drove in Blaine Bishop in the fourth inning on an RBI single.

In the fifth inning, Jacob Smith hit a sacrifice fly to score McDermott.

North Murray tacked on a run in the seventh, but the Tigers would hold on to move to 4-4 in region play and 10-7 overall.

They return to the diamond Thursday at home against Gordon Central.
