Baseball: EaFo wallops North Hall to take series win; Lumpkin sweeps; Saturday scoreboard

By AccessWDUN Staff

GAINESVILLE, Ga. — East Forsyth used a huge 10-run second inning to grab the lead en route to a 13-3, five-inning win over North Hall on Saturday in a crucial Region 8-4A North game for both squads.

The win gave the Broncos (9-6, 2-1 Region 8-4A North) a 2-1 series win over the Trojans (10-6, 1-2 Region 8-4A North).

However, North Hall got the quick early lead, scoring three runs in the first on a two-run single by Korbyn Sosebee and a RBI hit by Micah Jimerson. The Broncos plated a run in the bottom of the first on the first of four North Hall errors.

From there, Parker Roberts dominated the Trojans lineup the rest of the way going 4 2/3 innings allowing just the three runs on six hits while striking out five and walking one.

In the big second inning, the first eight East Forsyth batters reached against North Hall starter Landon Lee, who lasted just one-plus innings giving up six runs on four hits and two walks. Jimerson did not fare any better, giving up five runs on three hits and two walks in just two-thirds of an inning.

Mason Schreiber, Joseph Gurr, Owen McGee, Trey Farr, and Bradlee Hamby all had RBIs in the frame.

The Broncos added single runs in the fourth and then one in the fifth to invoke the merecy rule.

North Hall finished with seven hits on the day. Mills Lothridge and Charlie Wright both had two hits for the Trojans.


Lumpkin County completed a sweep of West Hall in Region 7-3A action.

The Indians (12-2, 5-1 Region 7-3A) jumped to a 6-0 lead after the third inning but the Spartans (3-10, 1-5 Region 7-3A) scored four times in the fifth to close the gap. Lumpkin County answered with two more in the bottom of the fifth but West hall scored single runs in the sixth and seventh to pull within 8-6.

Hayden Gilbert, despite giving up two runs in relief, was able to get a fly out to end the game with the go-ahead at the plate.

Gilbert and Cooper Scott both knocked in a pair of runs for Lumpkin County.

Brett Sturm drove in a pair of runs for West Hall.


The Tigers split a pair of Region 8-A Division 1 games with the Indians at Saturday. 

Commerce (7-8, 4-2 Region 8-A D1) opened with a 6-4 win in the first game. The Tigers led 3-0 after the first inning and 5-1 after the second and then held off a Tallulah Falls rally.

Braxton Morris had a hit and two RBI to lead Commerce at the plate.

Jaxon Foster tossed a complete game, allowing four runs on seven hits and striking out nine.

Coy Argo, Cohen Thomason, Coleson Smith, and Morris each collected one hit to lead Commerce

Tallulah Falls (6-7, 3-3 Region 8-A D1) answered back with an 8-4 in the second game to win the series, 2-1, and take the head-to-head tiebreaker.
