After rain washed out games everywhere, the Bleckley 13-14 boys sought to stay alive Friday in Cochran. They defeated Dodge County 10-1. Trailing Hawkinsville 4-0 after one inning, the lightning detector sounded for the third time. A subsiquent downpour rendered field conditions unplayable.
The gam resumed Saturday morning. BC trailed 8-1 but would chip away and tie things at eight in the fifth. After Hawkinsville scored three in the sixth, three Bleckley runs tied the score again. Playing under International Tiebreaker in the seventh, Chance Pittman struck out the side, and stranded a pair of runners.
Austin Bergeaux got the game-winning hit in the home half to give Cochran a 12-11 win. Their next game was a rematch versus Telfair County. Telfair went ahead 5-4 in the third and scored two more in the sixth. There were no more comebacks as Bleckley finished third, losing 7-4.
