Southampton Shutout; Tigers Regional Champs!
By Martin Phillips

SSTiger imageTABB, VA, June 3, 2018 - It is strange to think Tabb softball has not loss a game since last year. That was so 2017. In 2018 Tabb wins, all the time. The Tigers made through the regular season without falling to another team and has kept it going in the postseason, so far. This past Friday Tabb played old district foe, Southampton; who only had two losses. With a win Tabb would be regional champions and continue to be undefeated. By being in the regional championship they were already going to states. It was all good either way. Tabb just played how they usually did.

In the first inning Southampton did not get any runs in. This was a common theme throughout the entire game. In fact, pitcher Alyssa Lowe threw a shutout. Southampton could never get anything going. Then when Tabb came up to bat, the Tigers started it off with a blast. Kristen Malloy hit a 2 run home run. Already balls were going out of the park. It was 2-0 Tabb after only one inning.

It is true that Southampton did not score any. Tabb hitting a two run homer may make this look like Tabb take over, but it was not really that. There was innings the Tigers did not score in either. In the second and third Tabb did not add to their lead. Then in the fourth one Tiger run came in. The fifth was dry, but the sixth turned to be the biggest inning in the entire game. Tabb brought in three runs. Sealing a Tabb 6-0 win. Southampton could not comeback in the seventh. Tabb’s win was official.

Other scorers were Amber Verstynen went 2-4, Madelyn Morenic went 2-4, and Gracie Roberts went 2-3. The Tabb Tiger softball team are now regional champions! They are going to states! They are 23-0! The next game coming will be a Tabb home game. It is the state quarterfinal. The game is on Tuesday at 4:30 against William Monroe. Whatever happens, it is one heck of a season Tabb softball should be proud of! It’s not over yet! Here’s for the luck to continue for the Tigers!
