Southern falls twice in Somerset

Madison Southern dropped a pair of games in Somerset on Friday, falling to Pulaski County 8-6 and Southwestern 10-3.

In the opener, Southwestern got two runs in the second and four runs in the fifth inning to grab a 6-0 lead. The Warriors added three more in the sixth to take a 9-0 advantage.

Southern got all three of its runs in the sixth  all on a Griffin Norris home run. Norris added a single and Caleb Miller and Alec Rogers each had a single.

In the second game, the Eagles got on the board first with a run in the first and two more in the second inning to go up 3-0.

But after that, the Eagles bats went cold while the Maroons heated up.

In the top of the seventh, Devin Vanover led off the inning with his fifth home run of the season. Lukas Owens, Jacob Dixon and Kendan Angel all singled to load the bases but three straight strikeouts ended the threat.

Southern returns to action on Monday at Clay County at 6 p.m.
