The Kingston Lady Jackets took a rough home loss Tuesday evening to the Meigs County Lady Tigers.

The Lady Jackets led the whole game up until the last inning where a three-run blast by Meigs County’s Baylee Nunley gave the Lady Tigers the game. Kingston threatened, but had no answer in the bottom half of the inning. 

Kingston threatened in the top of the first inning as Lindsey Stickrod and Morgan Snow singled, but both would be left stranded.

Kingston got on the board first in the bottom half of the second with a solo home run by Katherine Butler. 

Morgan Snow picked up in the third inning where the Jackets left off, knocking a two-run homer to make the score 3-0 in favor of the Lady Jackets. Sydney Spurgeon had singled earlier in the frame and was on board for Snow’s blast. 

Meigs County didn’t not have a runner each base in the first three innings, but the Lady Tigers finally got on the board in the top half of the fourth as Lady Tiger Chloe Grayson hit a two-run shot which made it 3-2. 

Meigs County threatened again in the fifth inning as they loaded the bases, but all three runners were left on base as Kingston held on to the 3-2 lead.

Finally, in the seventh inning, the big three-run bomb by Baylee Nunley sealed the deal for a 5-3 Meigs County win. 

Kingston got the tying runs on base in the bottom of the seventh inning as T.J. Wicks doubled and Alex Aycock singled, but neither would score as Meigs County escaped Southwest Point with a two-run victory.

Morgan Snow led the Jackets at the plate with two hits and two RBIs. 

Meigs County was lifted by Nunley and Grayson as both combined for four hits and five RBIs. 

 The Lady Jackets will look to rebound this weekend when they travel to middle Tennessee for a tournament in Cookeville.
