Baseball State Playoffs – Sweet 16 Results
Nine of our local teams made the postseason. Only two (Jefferson & Commerce) advanced to the second round. Here is what happened for both.
COMMERCE 2, BOWDON 0
#1 Commerce defeated #4 Marion County 12-0 and 12-2 in quick order, advancing to the Sweet 16! In the second round, the Tigers beat Bowdon in thrilling fashion with an 8-7 win in the first game, and with an 11-8 win in the clinching game. That moves Commerce into the Elite 8 (Quarterfinals) to take on Charlton County.
JEFFERSON 0, MARIST 2
#2 Jefferson swept Mt. Zion by scores of 10-4 and 13-3 to advance to the Sweet 16. However, Marist won 9-4 and 10-0 to end the Dragons’ season.
