A walk-off two-run homer by Jake Campbell in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted the Apalachee High School baseball team to a 5-3 victory against Flowery Branch High School Monday afternoon.
The win was the sixth of the 2016 season in Region 8-AAAAA for the Wildcats, who continue to play well of late. Unfortunately for the ever-improving AHS baseball team, the season will come to an end Wednesday with a rematch against the Flowery Branch Falcons.
“We have been playing better,” said AHS coach Clint Harrison. “We have been getting some solid play in a lot of areas. It’s good to see the players still having the desire to succeed at this point in the season.”
Monday’s game also saw a strong pitching performance from Apalachee’s Trace Clamp, who went all eight innings and recorded nine strikeouts.
