Game three: Atmore 5, Brewton 1, 8 innings

In the deciding game three Saturday morning, and the winner advancing to the state tournament, it looked as if Brewton would claim a 1-0 pitcher’s duel winning through five innings of play.

Holding a 1-0 lead heading into the top of the sixth inning, Atmore tied the game at 1-1 and forced extra innings before getting four runs in the top of the eighth to down Brewton 5-1.

Brewton was held to only three hits in the game while Atmore had six.

Tyler Joyner got the start on the mound and the no decision as he went seven innings and allowed four hits, one run, walked one, hit one, and struck out eight.

Brewton used three pitchers in the top of the eighth inning in Rob Jones, Jones Manning, and Powell with Jones taking the loss.

Each pitcher went 1/3 of an inning with Jones allowing one hit, one run, and walked on.

Manning allowed three runs and walked and hit one and Powell allowed one hit.

In the top of the eighth, Atmore had two hits (a single and a three-run double), a sacrifice, two walks, a fielder’s choice and a hit-by-pitch.

Manning was 2-for-3 for Brewton at the plate and Parker was 1-for-3 for Brewton’s only hits.
