The DeKalb County Tigerettes traveled to Upperman on Tuesday afternoon to take on the Livingston Academy Wildcats in the second round of the district tournament. The Tigerettes walked away with an impressive 6-1 win to advance to the next round.Danielle Tyson was the winning pitcher in the match-up as she pitched seven innings, allowed three hits, had two strike-outs and walked one.The first inning was quick for both teams as neither team would score and only Loren Cripps found a base hit in the inning.The Lady Wildcats found a way to score in the top of the second, giving them the 1-0 lead. DeKalb would match that as Lauren Colwell would single to left field and bring in Abbey Caldwell to tie the game at one each.DeKalb would later explode in the bottom of the fourth inning with three runs scored with Cripps knocking down an RBI single to shallow centerfield.
