After a victory against the No. 1-ranked team in the state Friday, the Winder-Barrow High School baseball team returned to the field Monday and took a 3-2 win against visiting Flowery Branch.
The game was close throughout and was not secured until the bottom of the seventh when Christian Hodge delivered the game-winning RBI allowing Cole Baggett to cross home.
Drew Dunagan improved his season record to 5-0 by working all seven innings throwing 94 pitches in the process. Dunagan recorded seven strikeouts and maintained his composure even after the Falcons took a 2-0 lead in the top of the fourth on a homer by Drew Miles.
Flowery Branch also benefited from a strong pitching effort from Brad Keller, who worked 6.1 innings. The Presbyterian College signee impressed WBHS coach Brian Smith.
“He’s legit,” Smith said after the game. “He really fought and we were finally able to get to him.”
