“We are swinging the bat pretty good right now,” Blair said. “We are going to have to keep it up though.”

On the opposite of the field, Brundidge finished with four hits.

Amaghie Lampley, Chance Brunney, Jeremiah Foster and Tyler Glover.

“We hustled all season long,” Brundidge head coach Jimmy Dixon said.

“This was a good experience for the kids. We had a lot of young players on this team, so next year I think we are going to be even better.”

Troy will be in action today at 6 p.m. in Brundidge as it looks to wrap-up the Pre-Minor Dsitrict championship.
