SULPHUR — Heath Gilbert has called his squad "all or nothing" during an uneven 6-6 campaign.
Consider Tuesday an "all" day.
Sulphur got seven runs in the third inning, two off a Reilly Williams double, and held on the rest of the way to earn a 7-4 win over rival Davis.
"This happens all the time," Gilbert said of his team's offensive output. "We tend to score a lot at one moment or struggle the entire game."
The Bulldogs, trailing 1-0 heading into the third frame, showed some patience at the plate by drawing two walks before Harlee Griffis laced an RBI single to tie up the contest. After a Davis error, Williams broke the game open with her two-run two-bagger.
Two hits, another walk and a fielder's choice later, Sulphur held a comfortable 7-1 cushion.
"I like that we can get things going well and get on a roll," Gilbert said. "But we just need someone to step up and get something done every inning.
"We need to play a little follow the leader sometimes."
Casady Webb finished 3-for-4 for Davis in the loss, including a double and three RBIs that were part of a late seventh-inning rally.
"Our main thing is that we're going to play defense, and that's something we stress going back to fast pitch," Gilbert said. "But at the plate, districts are coming up next week and we've just got to find a way to fix that glitch."
