Hayes Linn allowed one hit and struck out eight batters to lead Cartersville over Ringgold 4-2 in high school baseball play on Thursday.

The win was Cartersville’s eighth in a row.

The Tigers scored the game’s first run in the top of the first and got a runner on base through an error and scored him off their only hit — a single — for a 1-0 lead.

That lead held until the fourth inning when Austin Adams hit a two-run shot to thrust the Canes into the lead at 2-1.

JoJo Underwood gave the Canes an insurance run with a solo shot in the sixth. Mark Quattlebaum scored the Canes’ final run in the fifth inning.

Ringgold scored its final run in the sixth inning, closing the issue to 4-2.
