Wildcats' playoff run ends at Loganville

April 29, 2024


The Woodland Wildcats had their playoff run end Monday night when they lost both games of a Class 5A second-round doubleheader at perennial Georgia baseball power Loganville.


The host Red Devils won the opening game 2-1 in 10 innings and then held off Woodland in the second game, 5-2.


Mason Williams singled home a run in the top of the third inning of Game 1 to give the Wildcats an early 1-0 lead but Loganville answered with a run in the bottom of the fifth.


The pitching duel extended into the tenth inning when the Red Devils’ Jordan Johnson singled home the winning run.


The loss spoiled strong pitching performances by Woodland’s Zach Lambert (5 IP, 1R, 0ER, 7H, 1BB, 2K) and JD Trail (4 IP, 1ER, 3H, 2BB, 2K).


Ayden Ray had two hits in the first game. Brett Good and Williams (RBI) had the only other Woodland base hits.


In Game 2, Woodland led 2-0 through three innings but Loganville tied the game with two runs in the fourth before grabbing the lead with a three-run sixth inning.


Austin Daves (5 IP, 4ER, 4H, 2BB, 6K) was tagged with the pitching loss for Woodland. Ray (2 IP, 1ER, 4H, 2BB, 4K) also pitched in Game 2.


Logan Bentley (double), Jake Clowers, Connor Stermer, and Williams had one hit for the Wildcats.


Loganville (21-12) advances to the Class 5A state quarterfinals to host McIntosh in a best-of-three series that begins with a doubleheader on Saturday.


Woodland has its year end with a 17-15 record.
