Walton 4, Lassiter 3:
From MDJ Reports
Walton rallied for two runs in the bottom of the seventh to beat Lassiter and clinch the Region 5AAAAAA championship. The Raiders (20-3, 13-1) narrowed a 3-1 deficit following a solo home run from Jason Rooks in the bottom of the sixth.
Luke Manzo led off the seventh and moved to second on Michael Guldberg’s sacrifice bunt. Carter Kieboom reached base on an error, bringing in Manzo from second with the tying run. Tyler Heinrichs singled up the middle to put runners on first and second, and Jason Rooks’ one-out single plated Kieboom for the walk-off victory. Rooks went 3-for-4 with two RBIs, including the homer and the game-winning RBI in the seventh. Connor Haseley (1-1) didn’t allow a hit or a run in his inning of work to get the victory.
