CALUMET CITY | T.F. South's Daviea Cowans and Cori Reynolds had never hit inside-the park homers.

In fact, Reynolds had never hit a round-tripper until Monday, yet alone hit them in consecutive games. But Reynolds hit her second homer in her life and did it the hard way on Tuesday.

Like Cowans, she had to hustle around the bases, and it was something she enjoyed.

"I just kept running and there was no way I was going to stop," Reynolds said. "I was pretty mad when I came up to bat because I had struck out in the first inning. I just got a hold off a good pitch and drove it."

The Rebels had little trouble with their District 215 rivals as they won the South Suburban Blue game 19-3 in five innings. All but two of T.F. South's runs were unearned.

Cowans just missed hitting for the cycle, though she reached safely four times. She reached on a two-base error in the third inning. She hit her inside-the-park homer in the fourth.

"My job (as a cleanup hitter) is to bring in the runners ahead of me," Cowans said. "I got some good pitches to hit and I was seeing the ball real good today."

So was Sydney Harrison, who drove in five runs. She was 2-for-3 with a walk. She would have had an inside-the-park homer in the third as she circled the bases easily, but T.F. North (2-18, 2-14) appealed, saying she missed third and she was ruled out when North pitcher Sara Daw touched third base.

South (9-11, 7-9) benefited from six Meteor errors. It scored seven times in the second on three hits and three errors. It added three in the third, eight in the fourth and one in the fifth.

Rebels pitcher Devin Pieper held the Meteors hitless through three. Natalie Pascual pitched a hitless fourth before North pushed across three runs in the bottom of the fifth. Christian Causey had a two-run single.

"Our girls tried until the end," North coach Kara Zentz said. "We always have that one bad inning in the field and we just fell apart."
