The Macon County Lady Tigers handed the DeKalb County High School Tigerette fast-pitch softball team a 5-1 district loss in Smithville on Thursday, and completed a regular season sweep of the local team.
Macon County struck with a run in the top of the third inning, but the Tigerettes tied the game on a run scored by Kristina Stephens on a double-steal opportunity in the bottom of the fourth inning. Brittney Armour almost scored the go-ahead run for DeKalb, moments later, but was thrown out at home on Shay Sullivan's single to left field on the throw back in to home plate.
The Lady Tigers put up the go-ahead run in the top of the fifth inning, taking advantage of a DeKalb County fielding miscue. Sullivan loaded the bases in the fifth before striking out a batter to end the inning, with Macon on top, 2-1.
