Love's two homers lead Tigers past Auburn

By Michael Butler

It happened not once but twice. And it was just what Tallassee needed to pick up its second win of the still young 2021 season.

Tallassee senior Lexi Love hit two homers and drove in all four Tiger runs in a 4-1 win over Auburn on Thursday at Southside Park. Love was 2-for-3 at the plate. Chloe Baynes and Brooke Royster also had two hits each for THS.

Love, the Chattanooga State commitment, gave Tallassee a 1-0 lead on a solo shot to center in the bottom of the fourth. The next inning, her second dinger went back over the center field fence driving in three.

Alexis Walls pitched five innings allowing just one run. She struck out one and walked four. Chloe Davidson pitched two scoreless innings of relief striking out three and walking one.

Tallassee 2-5-1 will host Wetumpka in a rescheduled game on Wednesday, March 3 beginning with the junior varsity game at 4:30.
