DICKSON — Sometimes mistakes can turn into something beautiful.

DICKSON — Sometimes mistakes can turn into something beautiful.

Case in point, Tuesday afternoon’s non-district game between the Dickson Lady Comets and Ringling Lady Blue Devils.

With the game tied at 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth, Lady Comets senior Jadyn McKenzie mistakenly ran past second base, while there was a runner still on third.

However, McKenzie managed to get herself caught in a run-down long enough for Alyssa Warren to cross home plate before being tagged out at second.

The resulting unintentional error gave Dickson a priceless 4-3 lead, which they were able to hold onto for its first victory of the season.

In addition, the victory was also the first under new head coach Kristin Williams at the helm of the Lady Comets. 

“I thought she (Coach Williams) sent the girl in front of me home,” McKenzie said about her sixth inning event. “At that point I just had to do my job and buy Alyssa some time. I was so excited when I saw the umpire count the run, I can’t explain it. Getting coach (Kristin) Williams her first win today feels amazing for all of us.” 

Before the theatrics took center stage, both teams and both starting pitchers each put on solid performances, which led to a closely contested game.

Lacie Winchester gave Dickson an initial 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first with an RBI single to left field.

However, Ringling responded right back in the top of the second when Karagan Cox sent an RBI bloop single to right field, tying the game at 1-1.

Kylie Farmer put the Lady Comets back in front at 2-1 with an RBI bloop single of her own to right field in the bottom of the third.

Ringling appeared to have luck on its side in the top of the sixth when Jacobi Miller’s bloop landed just inside the foul line in left field, scoring a pair of runs to put the Lady Blue Devils in front at 3-2.

But, Alyssa Warren stepped up to the plate to tie the game at 3-3 with an RBI single to center in the bottom of the sixth.

Kayden Barton then set the game-winning run in motion when her single advanced the runners, eventually leading to McKenzie’s run-down situation.

Dickson pitcher Shanna McKown then slammed the door shut in the seventh with a 1-2-3 inning, to seal the victory.

McKown got the win in the circle for Dickson (1-1, 0-1), throwing seven innings of work. She allowed one earned run on nine hits with one walk and three strikeouts.

Rhyme Tolliver took the loss for Ringling (0-1) also throwing seven innings. She allowed eight hits with four walks and three strikeouts.

Dickson will be back at home Thursday for a triangular against Marietta and Comanche, while Ringling will be playing in the Rock Creek Tournament Thursday afternoon, with games beging played through Saturday afternoon.
