TRADITION NEVER GRADUATES and the Admirals are going back to STATE!!
The Admirals scored 2 in the first inn on 2 HBP (Jammer and Chase) and 2 singles (AJ and D-LO) and made it stand up for a 2-1 victory over Dobbins Bennett in Kingsport.
Kyle Serrano battled through 5 tough innings, giving up only 2 hits to get the win and AJ Simcox retired 6 consecutive batters in the 6th and 7th inning to get the Save. Great pitching backed up by airtight defense saved the day.
The Sectional game in Kingsport tonight takes its place along side other great victories in Farragut history. The pitching performances by Kyle and AJ and the many great defensive plays with runners in scoring position (Nick, AJ, David, and Chase) shut down a great DB offense.
Clutch hitting by AJ and David Logan in the first inning which led to the only 2 runs were huge. Dobbins Bennett is a team that was capable of winning the State Tournament and they provided a great atmosphere for high school baseball.
But in the end, it was Farragut Baseball that prevailed and a good time was had by all.
Now, let’s go get another Ball for the Wall.
