(Continued)

KIMBERLY —

Devils freshman pitcher Bailey Murphy started strong, striking out the first three batters and four the first time through the Hayden order. But she only got one more after that.

Witt and Phillips each went 2-for-3 at the plate to lead Hayden. Brooke Hill was 2-for-3 for the Devils, with Murphy adding a double in the fourth.

The Wildcats (32-5-1) play their last area game at seventh-ranked Curry on Friday, and then close out the regular season Monday at Cullman. Jordan (18-13) hosts the Bearcats on Thursday and Curry on Saturday, then finishes off their regular season at home next Tuesday against Hoover.
