HAGERSTOWN -- The battle to stay out of the cellar in the MVAL Antietam Conference didn't turn out to be much of a fight Monday.
Lindsay Irving had three hits, two RBIs and four runs scored to lead the North Hagerstown softball team to a 19-3 victory over rival South Hagerstown in a game that was stopped after 4 1/2 innings.
"We like to come out strong at the beginning of the game," Irving said. "We like to pick each other up. We all yell in the dugout and support each other. This will give us a pretty good run to start the playoffs and we are all very excited about that."
After South (1-17, 1-13) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, North (2-16, 2-12) quickly erased the deficit by scoring nine runs in the bottom half.
The first nine batters reached safely for the Hubs as they sent a total of 15 batters to the plate in the inning. The big hits for the Hubs in the inning were a two-run single by Amanda Fiery, an RBI single by Faith Ricker and an RBI double by Irving.
