Walk-off single drops Hardaway, ends Hawks' season

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Hardaway Hawks saw their season end in heartbreaking fashion Thursday morning, falling 7-6 to Evans in a deciding game three.

Hardaway got on the board first with two runs in the second, the first thanks to a Will Griggs single to center.

Evans jumped all over the Hawks in the third, though. Playing as the home team, the Knights put up six runs and sent 10 men to the plate to lead 6-2 after three, but Hardaway was able to answer. With runners on second and third and the score 6-3 in the fourth, Blake Meadows drove a single to center scoring Josh Anthony and Sheridan Coy to make it 6-5.

The Hawks would go on to tie it in the sixth inning, where it stayed until the bottom of the seventh. After Jeremy Clements led off with a walk and moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, Colin Dominy drove in the game- and series-winning run with a single.

Evans will face the Pope/Winder-Barrow winner in the quarterfinals.
