|Vidalia slips past Cathedral|
When Vidalia and Cathedral get together on the baseball diamond you can usually count on a hard-fought battle that more times than not comes down to the final out.
That was certainly the case Tuesday night at Vidalia and the sparse crowd that braved frigid conditions certainly got their money's worth as the Vikings scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to defeat the Green Wave, 8-7.
And in typical Vidalia fashion, it was won by the Vikings manufacturing two runs in the bottom of the seventh.
After Caleb Johnson's double in the top of the seventh gave the Green Wave a one-run lead lead, Vidalia pitcher Beau Doughty got out of the jam with a double play as Seth Thompson flipped the ball to Mason Ozburn who fired to Trey Barnes at first base to keep the Green Wave from adding to its lead.
In the bottom of the seventh, Jake DeWeese led off with a walk on four pitches, Cameron Boyette then reached second base after a dropped third strike and errant throw that scored pinch-runner Trey Lillie.
Boyette stole third base when the ball was dropped at third and Doughty, with one man out, followed with a perfect squeeze bunt to the right side that scored Boyette with the winning run.
The Vikings trailed 4-1 early due to errors, but took advantage of Green Wave miscues to get bak in the game..
"We just kept battling," said Vidalia head coach Johnny Lee Hoffpauir. "It wasn't pretty, but it was a win."
Boyette led the Vikings at the plate with two singles.
Vidalia fell to Franklin County 5-3 in the Cathedral Round Robin Tournament on Friday.
Both teams managed only two hits, but the Bulldogs took advantage of walks and hit batters to win the game.
Seth Barlow had a double for Vidalia.
Vidalia faces Pineville Thurdsay at 6:15 in the Pineville Tournament. The Vikings meet Natchitoches Central Friday at 4 p.m. before closing out tournament play against Northwood of Shreveport Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
