In the 6-5 win over North Florida Christian, senior Colby Wingard earned the complete game win. Senior Bailey Chesser, an Auburn signee, played the designated hitter position and had a go-ahead, two-run hit in the top of the seventh inning to give Pinson Valley the 6-5 win.
Junior pitcher Zac Ray earned the complete game win in the 1-0 victory over Maclay. The lone run came in the fourth inning when Jason Little singled in Robert St. John.
In the Indians’ final game, senior Tyler Evans’ RBI triple in the top of the seventh inning scored senior Scott Falkinburg to give Pinson Valley the win. Senior Wyatt Burns closed out the game, giving Chesser the win. Senior Gracen Armstrong was 3-for-4 with two doubles in the win.
