Bailey Blanton jacks 2 homers to spark Lady Tigers to 13-0 victory

Mar. 15—ELYSIAN FIELDS — Bailey Blanton got her weekend off to a roaring start Friday evening in Elysian Fields.

Troup's senior catcher ripped two, two-run home runs as a part of a 3-4 night at the plate. She also drove in four runs in the Lady Tigers' 13-0 blanking of Elysian Fields.

The Lady Tigers improved to 12-6, 2-1 while the Lady Jackets slipped to 1-14, 1-3.

MaKayla Spencer belted out three hits, which induced a pair of doubles and collected an RBI while Taylor Gillispie stroked two triples and drove in a run.

Ending the evening with a pair of hits apiece were Sydnie Dickey, London Driggers and Shiloh Sluder.

Hannah Cearley added a single that brought two Lady Tigers in to score.

Gillispie earned the shut out in the circle. The junior worked six innings and allowed three hits while striking out 13 and not walking a batter.

Troup will be back home Tuesday to entertain Waskom.
