Game Recap

After an day 1 rain out, the second Athens, Alabama team on the Purple Tigers schedule asked for a rescheduled Thursday morning contest to be moved to Wednesday night in order to possibly see action in the Thursday tournament championship series. The Indians and the Tigers met up at 7 pm at the beautifully manicured Gulf Shores Sportplex baseball field. The East Limestone Indians showed early they deserved their 3-0 tournament record as they opened the 1st inning with four line drives that scored 2 runs off of Sophomore Purple Tiger Landry Williams. Williams settled in gave up only one more hit and kept the lead at 3 through 5 innings. The Purple Tigers tied the score at 3 in the bottom of the 5th on 4 doubles from Sophomore Tyler Vastola, and Seniors Kannan Akins, Seth Price, and Bo Whitlock. Junior Jensen White worked quickly in the 6th retiring 3 Indians on 13 pitches. Vastola again got the Watertown offense going in the bottom of the 6th with a 2 out double. Fellow Sophomore Matthew Winfree saw ten pitches in the next at bat, and finished up with a stinging RBI single into right field to give the Purple Tigers the lead. Down 4-3 the Indians gassed up for a 7th inning push that saw the 8, 1, and 2 hitters score off of White before Senior Cidney Cozart closed out the inning. The Purple Tigers found themselves behind for the 2nd time and were poised to answer back in the bottom of the 7th. Seth Price and Bo Whitlock led off with singles. Senior Center Fielder Jarred Bradshaw found the gap for an RBI double that scored Price from second. East Limestone loaded the bases with an intentional walk issued to Sophomore Heath Price. While the rule book might have said to issue the walk with a base open and a 6-5 lead, this proved to be detrimental for the Indians as the Purple Tigers’ heavy handed 3rd baseman strolled to the plate. Vastola worked the count full before belting his 2nd double over the Indian outfielders scoring Whitlock and Bradshaw for the win. Watertown Moves to 2-2 on the season, and prepares to host MTCS on Tuesday 3/21 before hosting the Wilson County Invitational March 23-25.
