Softball: Gardendale 7, Oak Grove 2

GARDENDALE — Carrigan Fain and Alissa Cornelius drove in two runs each, as Gardendale beat Oak Grove 7-2 in softball action Tuesday.

Cornelius hit a line drive to center field that drove in Fain and Katlyn Bailey in the first inning. Fain then hit an RBI single to left in the third inning, and another to center in the fourth that brought home Caroline Burns.

Staring pitcher Cris Gant worked four flawless innings, striking out six Tigers with no walks; two runners reached base on errors. Gant was relieved in the fifth by Jordan Smith.

Claire Lumpkin was 2-for-3 at the plate for the Rockets, with a double and a run scored.

The Rockets (2-1) are off until Monday, when they travel to Clay-Chalkville.
