Mt. Juliet second baseman Molly Back catches a throw from shortstop Tyffany Cargile, but the Beech runner is called safe in the fifth inning of the Lady Bears’ 7-6 loss in the district final. MJ scored all its runs in the fourth inning to grab a 6-4 lead.
Mt. Juliet pitcher Alyssa Costly is late with the tag as a Beech runner slides home on a wild pitch. The teams will play the “if necessary” game at 6 p.m. Friday with the winner playing host to a Region 5-AAA game Monday while the loser goes on the road.
