MURFREESBORO — Lebanon routed Red Bank 12-3 in the first game of the Worth Warrior Invitational at McKnight Park before the Devilettes were shut out by Florence [Ala.] 8-0 at Star*Plex on Friday.
The Devilettes scored all their runs in the top of the first inning to give Meghan Maynard an easy win.

Friendship's Rutledge racks up one-hit shutout of DCA
DONELSON — Coach Erica Powell said her Friendship Christian Lady Commanders were a little flat going into Friday's game at Donelson Christian.
But that didn't apply to Hailey Rutledge, who fired a one-hit shutout with 15 strikeouts in a 4-0 Lady Commander shutout. DCA didn't get its hit until one was out in the bottom of the seventh inning. She walked three.
"Hailey threw amazing," said Powell, whose 10-3 Lady Commanders travel to Columbia Academy today for a 3 p.m. game in a meeting of teams which finished second [CA] and third [FCS] last year. Friendship fell to the Lady Bulldogs 1-0 earlier this season.
The Lady Commanders didn't score until the third inning when Jessi Couch's grounder went through the third baseman's legs to let in the first run. Kenzie Dye delivered the big hit two innings later with a two-run double. Couch singled home the final score in the sixth.
"We came into the game a little flat," said Powell, noting DCA had just beaten McGavock 9-8 moments before. "They were up a little more than us."
In addition to her pitching, Rutledge also beat out a pair of bunt singles in the leadoff spot. Kelcey Lee also had a pair of hits and Shelby McDonald one.
Watertown's Reeder holds state runners up hitless until 7th, Tigerettes fall 1-0
COLUMBIA — Watertown's Sarah Reeder held defending state runner-up Columbia Academy hitless until the bottom of the seventh inning Friday when the Lady Bulldogs converted two singles into the game's only run.
A one-out single and stolen base by Chelsea Belk and a two-out RBI single up the middle by Callie Seal saddled Reeder and the Tigerettes with a tough-luck loss as Watertown slipped to 5-8.
Reeder struck out five in 6 2/3 innings.
Hannah Hogan held Watertown to five hits, including three by Sara Patchen and one each by Sara Page and Taylor Bradley.
Columbia Academy, which beat Friendship 1-0 earlier this year, gets a rematch with the Lady Commanders at 3 p.m. today.
Watertown will host Macon County at 5 p.m. Monday at Three Forks Park.

MT. JULIET — Metro Christian outscored Mt. Juliet Christian 8-6 Friday in a game which saw the teams combine to commit 12 errors.
The Lady Saints had just two hits, singles by Hannah Staggs and an RBI hit by Kelly Adkisson. They took advantage of four Metro errors and numerous passed balls.
But Metro Christian had 13 hits against starter Courtney Harris and reliever Paige Hudson and also took advantage of eight Lady Saint errors.
Harris pitched the first two innings and left leading 5-3 before Hudson went the final five to take the loss. Metro scored five times over the fourth and fifth frames to sink the Lady Saints to 4-7.
Mt. Juliet Christian will host Friendship Christian in a District 8-A game at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
