PEDRO — The Rock Hill Redwomen were like a time bomb. They ticked away for a few innings and then exploded.
Leading just 4-2, Rock Hill used a 12-run fourth inning to rout the Northwest Lady Mohawks in five innings on Saturday in the Queen of the Hill Classic.
Rock Hill got two runs in the first inning on a single by Rileigh Morris, a double by Grace Stevens and singles by Makenzie Hanshaw and Keilie Adams.
Northwest tied the game in the second but Rock Hill took the lead for good with a run in the bottom of the inning on Kelsey Olderham’s double and Morris’ RBI single.
The Redwomen added a run in the fourth on a leadoff home run by Stevens.
Rock Hill exploded for 12 runs in the fourth inning on seven hits, four errors and three hit batsmen.
The two big hits were a two-run triple by Morris and a double by Adams.
Stevens was 2-3 with a double, a home run and two RBI, Morris was 3-4 with a triple, two RBI and three runs scored, and Adams was 3-4 with a double and an RBI.
Maddie Harper was 2-3 with a double and Samantha Stamper was 2-3 with an RBI and two runs.
Rock Hill played Piketon in their second game of the Queen of the Hill Classic and took an easy 23-0 win highlighted by back-to-back home runs from Morris and Howard to start the game.
In other games, Peebles beat Chesapeake 5-0 and Portsmouth 7-0 in 10 innings, Manchester downed Fairland 12-3 and Westfall topped Ironton 6-2 in a rematch of last season’s district semifinals.
