Erratic pitching in the first inning and sloppy defense in the second cost the Lamar County Lady Trojans their first home loss of the season as they fell to Upson-Lee 7-4 here last week.
The Lady Knights took advantage of three walks and a pair of hits to score four first inning runs. They added three unearned runs in the second inning thanks to four Lamar errors to lead 7-0.
The Lady Trojans and pitcher Abby Walker settled down after that and held Upson scoreless the rest of the way on two hits, a walk and a hit batter. Lamar whittled away at the seven run deficit but could not get the big hit to get enough runs to catch up.
Pitcher Abby Walker gets a strategic talk from catcher Meagan Carter.
