JACKSON – Trailing 8-6 going into the bottom of the seventh inning, Jackson senior Maddie Baxter hit a three-run home run to give the Ironladies a 9-8 win over Chillicothe in a Frontier Athletic Conference softball game on Friday.

Before the walk-off homer, the Ironladies found themselves fighting an uphill battle going into the final frame.

It was the second home run of the game for the Ironladies, as Leah Alford crushed a pitch over the center-field fence to give Jackson a 6-4 lead.

The Ironladies won the season series against the Lady Cavaliers after winning, 7-5, at Chillicothe on April 16.
