  • Trailing 2-0, Pangburn erupted with four runs in the bottom of the third and the Lady Tigers never looked back, defeating Salem 6-3 on Wednesday in 2-2A Conference play at Pangburn City Park.
    The Lady Tigers avenged a 10-0 loss at Salem. “What a difference a day makes,” said Pangburn Coach Scott Hoffman. “We lost at their place 10-0 and gave up four hits, the same as today, but we had five errors. Addison Snowden (shortstop) and Marcy Atkins (second base) played well up the middle today.”
    Pangburn strung together four singles to take the lead for good in the third. Sophomore Brianna Curl sparked the youth-laden Lady Tigers, who only have one senior starter, with a bunt single.
    Freshman Jasmine Baughman, classmate Erica Parrott and sophomore Morgan Gallegly followed with consecutive singles as the Lady Tigers pounced on the Lady Greyhounds, suddenly snatching a 4-2 lead.
    Gallegly, Pangburn’s pitcher, crushed a 2-run home run that cleared the wall by 30 feet in left center in the bottom of the fifth, extending the Lady Tigers’ lead to 6-2.
    Gallegly struck out three and walked two while holding Salem to four hits. She helped her cause in the circle by finishing 2 for 2 at the plate with a single, walk and 2 RBI.
    Sophomore Lakelan Bell was 2 for 3 with 2 RBI and Parrott also contributed two hits (2 for 3 with an RBI) for Pangburn, which improved to 14-6 overall and 4-3 in conference play.
    After hosting White County Central for a doubleheader on Thursday, the Lady Tigers roam to Cedar Ridge today for a showdown with the first-place Lady Timberwolves. Pangburn currently stands third in the league standings, behind second-place Tuckerman and Cedar Ridge.
