    Rockwood didn't have one big inning Wednesday, but rather four small frames as the Tigers scored runs in four of their six trips to the plate.

    Rockwood's first three runs came in the bottom of the first inning.

    After the win over Oliver Springs, Midway now stands at 3-2 overall while the Bobcats fall to 5-4 with the loss.

    It was an almost an all lefty pitching day for both teams Thursday. Oliver Springs used three pitchers, but only the last one would have some success against the Midway bats.
