The Marion County softball team took advantage of 14 walks Monday night to come away with a 13-7 win over North Shelby.

After taking an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, the Lady Mustangs offense erupted for 12 runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to put the game away.

Payton Hays led the way with a 2-for-6 effort at the plate with a double, triple and four RBI.

Elizabeth Corey recorded a pair of hits and drove home two, while Makayla Corey was 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Sadie Spratt recorded the seventh and final hit for the Marion County offense and she also picked up an RBI.

Deanna Huffman (3), Delaney Huffman (3) and Aimee Glaspie (2) combined for eight of the Lady Mustangs free passes.

Deanna Huffman picked up the win inside the circle. She went the distance and scattered just four hits while striking out nine. Only two of the seven runs were earned.

“Deanna had a great game tonight,” Lady Mustangs coach Erin Cunningham said. “That was probably her best game of the season so far. The defense let her down in the fifth inning a little bit, but overall I thought we all played great.”
