Liberty Christian used the long ball to overcome an early deficit in defeating North Cross 7-4 at Porterfield Field last Friday afternoon.

Liberty followed a two-run blast to deep left-center in the second inning with a solo shot in the third in handing North Cross only its fourth loss of the season. Chris Shelton went 3-for-3 and Spencer Shaff had two hits for North Cross.
