Davis turned in a flawless effort. The senior struck out 6 batters and didn’t allow a single runner in her shortened four-inning win. She faced the minimum.

And when Franklin County did make good contact, her defense made the plays required. Savannah Cooper made a nice play in the hole in the top of the first to throw out a base-runner. Then in the top of the second Madison Pruitt erased a threat with a full-extension diving catch from her right-field position moving toward the foul line. Second baseman Aleayia Barnes caught a lineout in the fourth.
