"It was important we came back and played well after losing the first game of the double-header," Russellville Coach Lucas Branson said. "We got a good pitching performance from the guys we sent out to the mound to keep us in the game and give us a chance to get the key hit when we needed it."
Alex Thompson recorded the win with two strikeouts.

"Our kids really competed in this game, but we didn't get the timely hits when we had scoring chances," Branson said. "We've been stressing the importance of being focused when getting into the batters box, so I think we are close to breaking out offensively."
