Audio: Spalding coach Seth Harris discusses upcoming state playoff series with Cartersville
The Cartersville Purple Hurricanes will meet the Spalding Jaguars starting with a 4 p.m. doubleheader Wednesday in the Class AAAA state baseball playoffs at Richard Bell Field in Cartersville.
The best-of-three series would conclude with a rubber game on Thursday at 5 p.m. if needed.
Cartersville, who has assured home games until the neutral site finals, won its opening-round series with Pickens in a doubleheader sweep April 27 and won two of three against defending state champ Marist last Thursday and Friday.
The Hurricanes won the Region 5-AAAA title and are 27-8 this season.
Spalding, the 4th-seed from Region 2-AAAA, knocked off Region 1-AAAA champion Northside-Columbus in the first round of the state playoffs. Northside won the playoff opener 8-2, but Spalding bounced back to win Games 2 and 3 of that series 8-5 and 3-1. The Jaguars (17-16) then defeated Cross Creek of Augusta 13-5 and 5-1 last Thursday to reach the state quarterfinals against the Canes.
