Hampton’s middle school baseball team clubbed four extra-base hits in the fifth inning on Thursday, rallying past Johnson County for a 9-4 decision.
The Junior Longhorns (1-3) led 3-1 through four innings, before the home team opened the fifth with three consecutive doubles and led 6-3 following that at-bat.
Hampton’s Wyatt Lyons went the distance in scattering four hits. The left-hander struck out 10 and walked four in yielding two earned runs.
