HOOVER — Nicole Fisher's double in the fifth inning drove in Pinson Valley's only run of the game, as the Indians fell to host Hoover 10-1 in six innings, in Friday's play at the Orange and Black Invitational softball tournament.
Kyandi Tipler provided the big bat for the Buccaneers (12-7), hitting a two-run home run in the first inning and a solo shot in the fourth.
Bucs pitcher Morgan Pate held the Tribe (9-13) to five hits and struck out five for the win. Pinson's Jenna Trimm took the loss, allowing six runs (three earned) and eight hits over 3-2/3 innings.
