Madison County’s comeback bid against Loganville fell short at home Aug. 18, as the Red Raiders fell 3-2.
But the loss wasn’t without its drama.
With her team trailing 3-0 in the bottom of the sixth, Olivia Duncan stepped to the plate and launched the ball over the left field fence. Her teammates rushed to the plate to celebrate with the senior as she crossed home plate. Duncan then joined her teammates who rushed back out of the dugout as sophomore Ivie Drake followed Duncan’s blast with a homer to the right.
The score cut the Loganville lead to 3-2, but Madison County (6-2) couldn’t muster any more offense in the loss.
“We just weren’t very well disciplined at the plate,” said Red Raider coach Doug Kesler, whose team managed just four hits. “We didn’t have a good approach at the plate.”
Madison County bounced back from the Thursday loss with a 26-0 three-inning win over Cedar Shoals Tuesday. Madison County scored 17 runs in the bottom of the first, nine in the second, then didn’t bat in the bottom of the third.
