The DeKalb County High School Tiger baseball team rallied from a 4-1 fifth inning deficit, Tuesday night, and used a nine-run outburst in the bottom of the fifth to power past Macon County, 12-4, in their second regular season district match-up.
The Tigers scored a run in the bottom of the first inning, and held the 1-0 advantage until Macon tied the game with a run in the top of the third inning. The visitors parlayed an RBI single by Kyle Grace and three DeKalb County errors into a three-run fourth inning, as Macon went on top, 4-1.
DeKalb County blew the game open in the bottom of the fifth, however, using 14 at bats, five base hits and six walks to put up nine runs and take a 10-4 lead. Colt Stewart put the icing on the cake for the Tigers in the bottom of the sixth, as he blasted a two-run home run - his third of the year - which gave DC a 12-4 advantage.
