by By Randy Bruce
COLBERT - The Leopards slugged their way past the struggling Soper Red Bears 8-0 on Monday.
Dylan Jones went 2-for-3 with a triple, single, two stolen bases and three runs scored.
Jones was among seven Leopards to record a hit and six of them who crossed home plate: James Hair, Payton Whitehead, Colton Bruce and Jared Tucker each had a single and a run scored; Keller Cummins and Kason Krob had base knocks; courtesy runner Zach Lovelace scored a run.
The Leopards put a five-spot on Soper in the first inning to set the tone of the game. Krob (four K’s), Whitehead and Tanner Lyday took turns on the mound for Colbert.
Colbert (No. 10 in Class A) improves to 18-8 on the season. The district playoffs begin Thursday with games at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. against the host Falcons and Chattanooga. Both opponents are not among the top 20 teams as ranked by www.ossaarankings.com.
