The Lady Rattlers scored three times in the top of the eight inning to pick up a win at Russellville Friday night.

Courtney Stone started the eventual winning rally with a double and she scored on a double by Addison Bennett. Bennett came home on a single by Savannah Cessna.

A ground ball by Jayce Watson plated Reagan Pickartz with the third run of the inning to make it 7-4.

Russellville had scored four times in the bottom of the first and led 4-3 after one an a half innings. It stayed that way until the seventh when Bennett led off with a walk and eventually scored on a single by Emily Staton. The Lady Rattlers had a chance to avoid the extra inning but left the bases loaded.

Greenwood JV 7 Magazine 3

In a game that will not be figured into the record, the 2017 season got off to a quick start for the Magazine Lady Rattlers as they pushed across two first inning runs against the Greenwood JV Thursday.

However, the Lady Bulldogs responded with two runs of their own in the bottom of the inning and added four in the second inning on the way to a five inning 7-3 decision.

Braylea Matthews walked and Paige Barr bunted her way aboard in front of a Courtney Stone double for the Lady Rattlers in the first but Stone was stranded when Addison Bennett and Reagan Pickartz both grounded out and Jayce Watson struck out.

Magazine’s third run came when Stone singled, moved up on a walk by Bennett and scored on a hit by Pickartz.
