In an 11-0 victory over the Mustangs, Thorsby scored five runs in the first inning, including three on senior Cody Scott’s first home run of his varsity career, and the lead was never threatened.

Blake Bradberry, Dylan Carroll and Donnie Hoffman combined to allow one hit in five innings pitched while striking out eight Isabella batters.

Conner McRae went 2-for-3 at the plate with two runs scored. Chris Brown scored three runs and drove in two. Tyler Owens went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in the second inning and three RBI.

McRae went 2-for-3 with one run scored and one RBI.

The Rebels (14-1) bounced back to take an 8-1 win over Jemison in the tournament.
