The Smith County Owls took advantage of three unearned runs in the top of the sixth inning, and held off the DeKalb County Tigers, 5-4, in Smithville Tuesday night.
The Owls scored a run in the top of the first inning on an RBI single by Timmy Bush, but the Tigers answered with a run of their own in the bottom of the first on an RBI double by Zack Rowland. Neither team scored again until the fifth inning, when the Owls took the lead on a run scored on a wild pitch by Brandon Johnston.
DeKalb County came back, again, in the bottom of the inning, and tied the game, 2-2, on an RBI double by Cody Atnip. Bray Page followed Atnip's rip with an RBI single, which gave the Tigers a 3-2 advantage.
