Pack scores three in 10th to defeat Valdosta 15-14

MOULTRIE — Blake Bennett’s two-out, two-run single in the bottom of the 10th inning enabled the Colquitt County baseball team to escape with a 15-14 victory over Valdosta that put the Packers in tie for first place in Region 1-AAAAA.

Valdosta had scored two runs in the top of the 10th to take a 14-12 lead.

But Colquitt’s Daren Kent led off the bottom of the 10th with a single off Wildcats relief pitcher Jacob Davis.

Davis retired the next two batters and had two strikes on  Mack Hathcock.

But the Packers’ sophomore left fielder doubled to drive in Kent and went to third when the throw back to the infield went awry.

Valdosta coach Bart Shuman then elected to walk Aubrey McCarty and Austin Dykes to load the bases, setting up a game-ending force out at any base.

But Bennett, the junior center fielder, wasted little time shooting a single to right to drive in the tying and winning runs, some four hours and 10 minutes after the game started.

It was the first hit of the game for Bennett and it raised the Packers region record to 6-2, tying them atop the standing with Lowndes.

The Packers are 11-6 overall.

Valdosta falls to 1-7 in the region.

The Packers led 5-0 after four innings and were up 9-2 after the fifth.

Valdosta scored three runs in the top of the sixth to make it 9-5, but the Packers appeared to put the game out of reach with three of their own in the bottom of the sixth to go up 12-5.

But the Wildcats took advantage of two Colquitt County errors and three walks to score seven runs in the top of the seventh to tie the game.

Bradley Felkel had a two-run double inning and Brennan Goodson had a two-out double to tie the game before the Packers brought in McCarty to get the final out.

Neither team scored in the eighth and ninth innings, but the Wildcats reached McCarty for two runs in the top of the 10th.

McCarty got the win in relief to raise his record to 6-1.

Tuesday’s game was makeup of the game rained out on March 23.

The Packers and Valdosta will meet again on Friday in Valdosta.

Colquitt County will be back at Ike Aultman Field at 5:45 p.m. today to play host to Lincoln High of Tallahassee.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
