WHAT SPORTS SHOULD BE ABOUT…
Earlier in the ninth, Yainer Diaz hit a two-run Home Run to bring Asheville within one. Diaz came back to the plate with two outs in the bottom of the tenth. Two runners were aboard and the Tourists trailed by two. Diaz launched the first pitch he saw deep into centerfield. Rome’s outfielder, Michael Harris, raced back to the wall and made a leaping catch with no room to spare to end the game.
Asheville fell behind early 3-0 and also trailed 6-2 and 8-4 at different points in the game. The Tourists never quit and used timely pitching to keep the game within striking distance. Abreu paced the offense with his two Home Runs as well as an RBI double. Diaz finished 3-for-6 from the cleanup spot. Zach Daniels delivered two key hits late in the ballgame.
After the Tourists tied the game 8-8 in the ninth. The Braves received a gift in the top of the tenth. Freylin Garcia balked twice before throwing a pitch to allow their runner to score from second base. Shean Michel then hit a clutch two-out, two-run Home Run that gave Rome a three-run cushion. Despite everything, Asheville still came within a few feet of pulling out what would have been one of their craziest wins of the season.
- What’s next: In Asheville today through Sunday. Listen live here. Final home series begins Sept. 14 vs. Hickory (seven games).
The Atlanta Braves walk it off for the win, 7-6. Media release: Following his team’s 7-6, 10-inning win over the Nationals at Truist Park on Thursday night, Braves manager Brian Snitker was asked if he had found a way to best define a game like this, during which teams repeatedly trade punches over the final innings.
“It was just mind-numbing and exhausting,” Snitker said. “I’m proud of the guys. They fought their rears off tonight in that game with the adversities. That was something.”
Joc Pederson ended the madness when he laced a walk-off single to left field off Wander Suero in the 10th. Pederson’s second career game-ending RBI ended a battle during which the two division rivals traded leads three times over the final six innings.
With a defeat, the Braves would have lost this three-game series against the Nationals. But by claiming their 14th win of the season against Washington, they moved 3 1/2 games ahead of the second-place Phillies in the National League East.
- What’s next: Marlins in town tonight through Sunday.
Georgia High School Association: No changes in COVID policy at this time. From the website:
The Sports Medicine Advisory Committee “had a very informative meeting yesterday; discussing how COVID is affecting each part of the State, immunization statistics from each part of the State, the different variances and how they might affect our population. After the meeting, the GHSA will continue to follow the path we have currently without changes. Our next meeting will be in October but could be scheduled earlier if necessary.” — Don Corr, Associate Director
That follow a report from the AJC on Thursday that states:
“At least 13 high school football games scheduled for Week 4 in Georgia have been canceled, postponed or forfeited with seven others added to the schedule. That remains below the first three weeks, where about 25 games on average have been called off.” Expanded report.
That total includes the Trion/Dade County game although Trion has found a sub.
