Tabb took home a 6-1 road win against Jamestown on Monday after the game was called early because of severe weather.

When the came was initially called, Tabb was up to bat in the top of the sixth inning. However, it was soon determined the game would be unable to continue because of continuous lightning in the area.

The Tigers opened the game with a run scored during the second at bat of the first inning. Amber Verstynen reached base on a double to start the game, later scoring on a wild pitch.

Jamestown knotted the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the second inning as Arianna Reynolds was able to score on a wild pitch.

Tabb's Kendall Wooddell logged the first RBI of the game in the top of the third inning with a single into left field that scored Verstynen.

On the next at bat, Ashley Adams delivered an RBI double into left field that brought Wooddell across home plate standing up.

The Tigers logged their final runs of the game in the top of the fifth inning, starting with an RBI single by Emily Gavin.

Later that inning, Leah Overbay hit a line drive into left field that scored Adams and Gavin for the game's final runs.

Tabb (6-5) has now won back-to-back games and will look to continue its winning streak on the road Tuesday against Bruton.

Meanwhile, Jamestown (4-10) has now lost three consecutive games and will try to rebound on the road against Warhill on Tuesday.
