First Presbyterian Christian Academy had a huge win over David Emanuel Academy Tuesday on the diamond in Stillmore. The Highlander boys followed up that performance with a come-from-behind win Friday at home against Twiggs Academy.
FPCA beat David Emmanuel, their Region 2-AA foe, 6-5. Friday, they won, 7-6, on a walk-off hit against Twiggs, taking over first place in the region.
Coach Ryan Harmon said Jared Wells pitched a complete game, allowing only two earned runs against DEA.
Slugging for the Highlanders was Kyle Hill with 3 RBIs, including the go-ahead RBI in the top of the seventh on a sacrifice fly.
“Hill also had a two RBI double in the sixth inning to get us back in the game,” the coach said. “Isaiah Dickey had a huge lead off hit to get us going in the top of the seventh and eventually scored the tying run.”
Harmon said Dylan Stewart also had two hits and scored the go-ahead run.
Friday, the team took a quick, 3-0, lead over Twiggs, but the Trojans tied the game in the third and soon had the advantage.
The Highlanders stayed focused and Dickey stepped up his at bats, earning three hits against the Trojans including the go-ahead, walk-off hit to give FPCA the win.
K’Ane Nunn pitched the first three innings and started off with three back-to-back strikeouts. Hill pitched the final three innings.
FPCA is 5-2 in region play and 6-6 overall.
