HCA ended the inning by scoring two more runs to put them up by 3 going into the 7th“I was proud of the boys in the top of the 7th. being down by 2 with not much momentum is a tough thing to come back from. They rallied together, picked each other up, and created opportunities to win” said coach Smith. Victory Baptist was able to load the bases in the bottom of the 7th, but only scored one run. Evan Holcombe struck out the last batter with the bases loaded to secure the win for HCA.
