Tessa Ivey got the win, allowing two runs — one earned — on four hits and one walk while striking out five.

“This is a good win for us,” Carbon Hill coach Wade Tittle said. “We have lost several close games, but this group of girls keeps grinding away, and when you do that, good things are going to happen.”

At the plate for Carbon Hill, Jessica Hurst was 2 for 3 with two RBIs. Katie Moore, Anna Grace Martin, Korey Tidwell and Ivey each had hits.

For Lynn (22-3), Emma Easley was 2 for 3 with a home run and Reagan Tittle was 1 for 3.
