Woodland nabs come-from-behind win over Sprayberry

Woodland scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning at home Friday night, then reliever Trent Porter worked a scoreless seventh inning as the Wildcats came-from-behind to defeat Sprayberry, 2-1.

A scoreless game through the first four innings, Sprayberry took a 1-0 lead in the top of the fifth on back-to-back hits, a walk, and a hit batsman. It would be the only run plated by the Yellow Jackets in the game. Trevor Collum picked up the pitching win for Woodland by working a scoreless sixth inning. He struck out the side before Porter earned the save with two strikeouts of his own. Woodland pitchers combined for 15 strikeouts. Scotty Smith (3 IP, 0R, 3H, 1BB, 6K) started for the Wildcats and fanned six in the first three frames. Carter Heath (2 IP, 1ER, 2H, 2BB, 4K) worked the fourth and fifth innings.

Woodland loaded the bases in the fateful sixth inning and scored their game winning runs without a hit. Three hit batsmen and a pair of walks in the inning plated the Wildcats’ go-ahead runs.

Fisher Davis, Peyton Posey, and Smith had base hits for the Wildcats.

Ryan Cross and Bryce Koshko combined for five of the Yellow Jackets’ six hits.

The loss drops Sprayberry to 0-2 on the season. Woodland (1-1) hosts Rockmart Monday at 5:55 p.m.
