Tigers nip Warriors with walk-off region win

April 10, 2024

Landon O’Neal’s sacrifice fly drove home Braxton Ryan Wednesday evening in the bottom of the eighth inning lifting the Adairsville Tigers to a 3-2 walkoff victory at home over Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe.

Ryan doubled to open the eighth inning. After Jack Nelson was intentionally walked, Hudson Parr advanced both base runners and loaded the bases with a bunt single.

Both sides received strong pitching efforts.

Eli Walker started on the mound for LFO and pitched into the seventh inning.

Nelson (7.2 IP, 2ER, 6H, 2BB, 6K) started for Adairsville and went 7-⅔ innings with six strikeouts. He allowed two earned runs in the first three innings but kept the Warriors off the scoreboard the rest of the way. McCayden Hufstetler retired the final out in the eighth inning with a strikeout.

Peyton Bowen (RBI) and Ryan had two hits for the Tigers. PJ Weeks, Jarrett Scott, Nelson, Parr, and Ryan Farr added one hit. 

The loss dropped the Warriors to 9-14 overall and 3-7 in Region 6-AAA.

Adairsville (13-7, 6-4) is scheduled to play at Coahulla Creek on Thursday and host the Colts on Friday. Both games are set for 5:55 p.m. starts.
