Tunstall trailed Franklin County 3-2 with just six outs left in Friday’s Piedmont District softball championship in Dry Fork. After an error in the bottom of the sixth allowed the tying run to score for the Trojans, senior Longwood University commit Nia Green won the game in the bottom of the seventh with a two-out walk-off home run.
The final score was 4-3.
That was Green’s second home run of the game, hitting one in the bottom of the first inning to tie the game at 1-1 at that point. Green had two of Tunstall’s five hits on the night, but it was enough for the Trojans to get the win. Kalei Hundely had a hit and an RBI for Tunstall. Harley Hearp had the other hit for the Trojans.
Kayley DeVivi earned the win in the circle for Tunstall, pitching a complete game and allowing just one earned run on nine hits, four walks with five strikeouts.
Tunstall (21-2) will be the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Region 3D tournament and will host Abingdon Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
