Senior League all-stars win state, move on to regionals
WATKINSVILLE — The Madison County Senior League all-stars will get a summer trip to Florida.
But this will be no vacation. They’ll be trying to win a regional championship.
Madison County beat the Western (Macon) Senior League all-stars, 7-4, Thursday in thrilling fashion for the state title, Madison County’s first in the senior division since 2002.
The team enjoyed a six-run first inning and staved off Western for the win in front of a large congregation of Madison County fans who made the short drive over to Watkinsville.
“We didn’t think they (Western) knew how to play from behind,” Madison County manager Bryan Wilkes said. “We had to jump on them early and stay on them.”
Dustin Roberts started, pitching four innings for the win. Sean Fernandez took the mound in the fifth and worked three innings of scoreless relief to hold off Western.
Madison County brought 10 hitters to the plate in the first inning and pounded out seven hits in bouncing on Western early.
The team will head south for a 10 a.m. game next Friday against the state champions from Tennessee. The regionals are being held in Viera, Fla.
For the rest of the story and more pictures from Madison County’s state championship win, see next week’s Madison County Journal.
