Melton finished the night three for four with two homers, three RBI and two runs scored. Carrie Allen also went three for four with a solo home run in the fourth inning, a double and a single and two RBI. Taylor Griffith went the distance for the win, scattering six hits, including a two-out solo home run in the seventh inning for East Hickman’s only run.
