Gabi Jacobs went 3-3 at the plate with a double, three runs and three runs batted in last Friday night, to lead the Mexia Ladycats to a 16-6 win over district opponent Palestine.
Mexia broke the ice Friday night in the first inning, after Priscilla Garcia reached base on a single and later came around to score the game’s first run. Ashton Langley, who had earlier walked, ended up scoring the Ladycats second run of the inning after Angel Carroll hit a sacrifice fly, giving Mexia an early 2-0 lead.
Palestine came back in the bottom of the inning to tie the game at 2-2.
Mexia held their Ladycat counterpart to no runs over the next two innings, while putting up seven to put the score in their favor at 9-2.
In the top of the fourth, Jacobs doubled in Destiney Flores to make it 10-2. Later on, Jacobs, Garcia and Langley would score to give Mexia a 13-2 advantage.
