Wednesday Class AA baseball roundup

By Score Atlanta

Appling County 3, Blessed Trinity 1: Senior first baseman Kyle Miller slammed a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning to break a 1-1 tie and host Appling County won Game 3 to advance to the semifinals. Josh Deen pitched six innings and got the win for the Pirates, while Byron Buxton earned the save with one inning of perfect relief.

Lovett 6, Calhoun 5: Lovett scored five runs in the top of the seventh to take a 6-4 lead, then Mitch Stallings, despite allowing a solo home run in the bottom half, picked up the save to give Lovett the series victory. The visiting Lions took a 5-4 lead on a squeeze bunt RBI by Nick Boden, then a sac fly from Jack Stickney (3-for-3) scored one more. RBIs from Sean Reagan and Brooks Schoen (the winning pitcher after working the sixth) helped Lovett pull even at 4-4.

Pierce County 5, Buford 4 (8): Cole Dowling’s single in the bottom of the eighth scored Will White to give visiting Pierce County the series win. White (9-1) earned the win, entering in relief in the third inning and finishing the game. Tim Huff put the Bears on the board in the first inning with a two-run single, and Brian Barefield and Nate Gay had RBIs in the third.

I find it amazing that a school from Atlanta that cost and average of $21K to attend is going to play a in a town where that is not far from the average income! I hope the Bears win so that secures an all 2-AA Final! Go Bears!

It is really not amazing that the south ga schools are so good in baseball. After all what else is there to do in the middle of nowhere?
