By By Todd Thompson, Hartselle Enquirer
Hartselle American scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning on a fielder’s choice by Garrett Wade to beat Decatur American Blue 2-1 to stay unbeaten in Dixie 7-8 sub-district play Monday night.
The Hartselle all-stars struggled to score runs after posting 16 runs in a win last Friday in the team’s opening game of the tournament.
J.P. Speegle scored from third after hitting a leadoff single for Hartselle in the inning. He moved on to third on a throwing error on a hard grounder by Braxton Peck to set up the winning run.
Decatur American scored the game’s first run in the top of the third inning with just one hit.
With hits from Wade and Houston Wright in the fourth inning, Hartselle threatened, but Decatur got out of the inning with a force out.

Hartselle was scheduled to finish up the five-team round-robin tournament with games against Morgan American West Tuesday and Athens American Wednesday.
All teams in the sub-district tournament at Sparkman Park will advance to the district tournament.
