Rain washed away Monday’s scheduled Region 8-AAAAA games for Apalachee and Winder-Barrow, but both teams posted key victories Friday.
The Diamond Doggs defeated Clarke Central 13-3 in six innings in a game played in Athens. Christian Hodge earned the win by recording 10 strikeouts.
Cole Baggett homered in the win and Aaron Gonzalez delivered an RBI double.
Tyler Hamrick and Bailey Hawkins also contributed offensively.
The two teams were set to meet again Monday, but that game was postponed due to weather conditions and has now been scheduled for Thursday afternoon at Charles W. Maddox Complex.
AHS, meanwhile, defeated Cedar Shoals 9-1 at home Friday in a region game the Wildcats had to have in order to stay in playoff contention.
Jacob Campbell earned the win while Kody Glausier had a two-runer homer.
Monday’s rematch in Athens was postponed until April 15.
