Seaman, Tigers knock off Class 5A 7th-ranked Carrollton
Adairsville’s Sam Seaman tossed a complete-game, scattered six hits and a walk, and earned a 6-3 win for the Tigers Monday night in an upset of Class AAAAA 7th-ranked Carrollton.
Seaman also homered and doubled in a 3-for-3 night at the plate that included a walk and three RBIs.
The loss was only the second of the year for the visiting Trojans, while the win was just Adairsville’s second of the season.
Carrollton scored a run in the top of the first inning and two more in the top of the third, but the Tigers answered each time and Seaman (photo left) kept the Trojans off the scoreboard the remainder of the night.
Adairsville scored two runs in the bottom of the first to go ahead 2-1. The Tigers added two more runs in the bottom of the third to go back ahead 4-3 and added two more insurance runs in the sixth for the 6-3 final.
Andy Smith had two hits and one RBI to lead Carrollton’s bats. Mike Wright tripled, Tate Fricks, Cole Sauls, and Asa Awbrey had the other Trojans’ hits.
Rhett Daniel pitched into the fifth inning for Carrollton and suffered the loss.
In addition to Seaman’s offensive output, Kyler Pelfrey, Hunter Hice (RBI), and Cody Henderson (RBI) all had two hits each for the Tigers. Noah Dutton (RBI) and Garrett Mishoe had the other Adairsville base hits.
Carrollton slipped to 8-2 on the season with the loss.
