RINGGOLD, Ga. (WRCB) -- Austin Adams and JoJo Underwood homered and Hayes Linn kept Ringgold's bats in check to lead visiting Cartersville to a 4-2 rivalry win Thursday evening at Bill Womack Field.
Linn gave up just two hits and struck out eight in six innings to keep the Purple Hurricanes (9-3, 5-0) unbeaten in region play.
Ringgold's Logan Baldwin allowed just five hits while working into and out of trouble for much of the day, but two of them proved costly.
Adams launched a two-run blast in the fourth to put Cartersville in front 2-1, then Underwood followed an unearned run in the fifth with a lead-off solo shot in the sixth for a 4-1 advantage.
Slade Dale demonstrated his disruptive abilities on the basepaths while scoring both Ringgold runs.
The junior shortstop reached on a error in the first and scored the game's first run on Austin Parrish's single. In the sixth he reached on a lead-off walk and came around the bases via a balk and two wild pitches.
The loss drops Ringgold to 9-6 overall and 2-2 in region play.
