Cairo, Bainbridge tie in final inning


A walked-in batter with one out and immediate double play to follow yielded a 3-3 tie between Cairo and Bainbridge in Friday’s three-game finale at Cairo.

Cairo loaded the bases with a pair of walks and a base hit by Jesse Miller, then earned the free run before hitting into the double play.

The Syrupmakers had trailed the bulk of that game to that point after taking a 1-0 lead in the first inning when Drew Leverette narrowly scored on a wild pitch.

Bainbridge answered with a pair of runs in the second – one on an RBI liner up the middle by catcher Noah Bryant, which would’ve brought home another had a runner not been called out at home; and another when second baseman Grayson Heard drew a bases loaded walk.

Cairo catcher Koby Pyrz brought the Syrupmakers to within one when he ripped a two-out base hit down the left field line that brought home Drew Leverette. The teams went scoreless the rest of the way until Cairo’s walked-in runner.

“Tying is what it is during the summer time,” Bainbridge coach Brian McCorkle said. “Obviously you want to win and we made some mistakes, but I was proud in our guys for overcoming them and playing hard for 14 innings.”

Added Best: “We’ve got to find ways to win those kind of games. You’ve got to find a way to manufacture, sometimes just one run, when both sides are playing solid defense. These are the kinds of games that I think we can learn more from than if we win 10-0. As a coach, there are a lot more teaching points in games like these.”
