Cairo in two-way tie for second in 1-AAAA after win over Worth


Cairo utilized timely manufacturing of runs to secure a 5-4 win over Worth County on Tuesday.

The Syrupmakers mustered just four hits but capitalized on a three walks, two singles and a sacrifice fly in the final inning to notch another region win.

Emery Hancock brought in the game-winning run with an RBI single after Cairo had entered the final inning down, 4-2.

“The kids never gave up. They just hung in there and took advantage of a little wildness by their pitcher.” Cairo coach Ron Best said. “It was an exciting way to win a ballgame.”

Cairo took a 2-1 lead in the first inning then allowed three Worth runs in the fourth and fifth to fall behind. At  that point, Best relieved Bailey Lewis in favor of Tyler Dalton, who allowed just one hit the rest of the way while picking up the win.

Cairo (11-13, 10-3) now sits in a two-way tie with Worth for second place in the hunt for the state playoffs. Both teams have already qualified but are fighting for the No. 2 seed behind Crisp County.

Cairo has just one more region game remaining on Friday against Monroe. Should both teams tie, the break would be determined by run differential, then runs allowed in the region.

“We’ll have to wait and see,” Best said. “Either place, we’re satisfied to be in the playoffs again.”
