Saginaw Chisholm Trail scored three runs in the eighth inning and held on for a 5-2 win over rival Saginaw in a District 6-4A game on Friday night at Saginaw High School.

The win preserved the Rangers’ spot in second place ahead of the Rough Riders in district play.

“We just finally got the bats going there about the sixth inning,” Chisholm Trail coach Calvin Wright said. “That’s definitely a rival game now, you know; we lost twice to them last season, and now we’ve beaten them twice.”

Chisholm Trail (21-1, 10-1) started the eighth with a big double by nine-hole hitter Shelby Warren.

After the Rangers loaded the bases, Warren scored what proved to be the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Victoria Quinn.

Alex Potts delivered the other two runs with a double to left.

“Shelby was due,” Quinn said. “She’d been swinging the bat all right but just hadn’t connected. That was a big deal to have the lead runner on with the top of the order coming up.”

Saginaw (12-9, 9-3) had the lead twice, including in the fifth inning when Rachel Hills’ RBI single to center helped the Rough Riders to a 2-1 lead.

But Chisholm Trail got a run in the sixth on Quinn’s single to tie things up. Quinn was 1 for 3 with two RBIs.

Saginaw got on the board first when Marissa Davila singled and scored on a throwing error.

The Rough Riders held the lead until the fourth, when the Rangers got their offense going.

Right fielder Mariah Gonzales drew a walk and then scored on Potts’ single to right field. Potts then was cut down trying to stretch the single into a double to end the inning.

Sierra Hanes (17-1) worked all eight innings, scattering two runs and five hits with six strikeouts.
