Prep roundup: Big blast by Mason leads Lions to win

Christian Heritage School didn’t let Tre Mason’s grand slam go to waste.

Mason’s fourth-inning four-RBI home run gave the Lions the lead for good in a 13-6 varsity baseball victory against visiting North Cobb Christian on Tuesday.

With the Lions (10-7, 7-4 Sub-region 6A-A) trailing 3-2, Mason went deep and his team never looked back.

Mason also had another hit and another RBI in the victory, while Spencer Robbins went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, Chase Tidwell was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs and Jake Stokes added a two-run single.

Brady Souther pitched 1 2/3 innings, allowing three runs off three hits and four walks. Robbins earned the win in relief, throwing 4 1/3 innings and allowing three runs. He gave up three walks and six hits while striking out five.

Adairsville 5, North Murray 1: The Mountaineers gave up four runs with two outs in the bottom of the first and couldn’t find their offensive rhythm while falling on the road in a Region 5-3A contest.

Brandon Brock was 2-for-4 with a double, and Aaron Granger drove in North Murray’s only run in the third to cut Adairsville’s lead to 4-1.

Granger took the loss on the mound, going four innings and allowing five hits and two walks while striking out seven for the Mountaineers (7-9, 4-3).

Sonoraville 7, Coahulla Creek 5: The Colts (6-11, 3-5 Region 5-3A) lost their second straight game after the Phoenix scored two runs in the eighth.

Jacobs pitched seven innings, allowing five runs (three earned) on nine hits and two walks while striking out four. Phillips pitched an inning and allowed two runs (one earned) off a hit and a walk while striking out one.
