Tigers finish sweep of Coahulla Creek

Chris Roper hit a seventh inning grand slam in Adairsville's 6-1 win Friday at Coahulla Creek.

The Adairsville Tigers completed an important two-game region sweep of Coahulla Creek in Whitfield County Friday night with a 6-1 road victory.

The Tigers and Colts battled scoreless through the first three innings before Adairsville’s Peyton Bowen gave his team the lead with a two-run homer to left field in the top of the fourth.

Coahulla Creek cut the margin in half with a run in the bottom of the sixth. Then the Tigers’ Chris Roper hit a grand slam home run in the top of the seventh inning for a 6-1 final.

Jack Nelson collected the pitching win for Adairsville with a complete game. He scattered seven hits, two walks, and four hit batsmen to allow just one earned run.

Jarrett Scott was the only Tiger with two hits. One was a double.

Evan Sanders, Landon O’Neal (double), and Easton Elrod had one hit each to go with the two Adairsville home runs.

The Colts fall to 12-12 on the season and 5-7 in Region 6-AAA.

The Tigers (14-10, 8-4) can secure a state playoff berth by winning one of two games next week with Bremen. Adairsville could potentially catch Gordon Lee for second place by winning both games with Bremen. Gordon Lee has a home-and-home series with region-leading Ringgold next week.

The Tigers host the Blue Devils Tuesday at 5:55 p.m. and are scheduled to visit Bremen Thursday for a 5:55 p.m. start.
