TUESDAY GAMES: REDS 10, FLOMATON (B) 3

Kristian Smith added a double and two runs scored, while Baylen Parker and Andrew Etheridge each contributed hit as well.
Garrett Salter got the win on the mound, allowing just one hit in his two innings of work and striking out five.
CUBS 11, EB A’S 3
Behind a masterful one-two punch on the mound from Drew Williamson and Jordan Williams, and the same duo leading the offense, the Cubs won handily in their opening game of the tournament.
Williams had a pair of hits, with one being a triple, while Williamson added a pair of singles.
In addition, Williamson got the win on the mound with a one-hit, four-strikeout performance in just over an inning of play.
Williams came in for 2 and two-thirds innings to finish it up by allowing no hits and striking out six.

EB RED SOX 9, RED SOX 6
In a game that featured only two total hits and 21 walks, the East Brewton Red Sox overcame the Brewton Red Sox in the rain-soaked first round of the tournament.
East Brewton made the most of its opportunities, using an 8-run second inning to win the game.
After a strikeout to start the inning, an infield error that would have provided the second out gave East Brewton a runner on first. Seven straight walks following that error allowed the eventual winners to take the upper hand and go on to win the game.
Connor Huskey had the only hit for the winners, while Lane Clark led the Brewton Red Sox with their only hit, a single.
Caleb Winton starred defensively at catcher for the Brewton Red Sox, throwing out two would-be base stealers at second and retrieving a wild pitch and tagging the runner out trying to steal home.
