Calhoun County, AL – Day 1 of the county baseball tournament is underway at Choccolocco Park … six games back-to-back on the signature field; scores updated as the day goes along

DONOHO 9, WEAVER 2: Nic Thompson came up from his slide after hitting the three-run triple that broke open the game in the bottom of the sixth inning, slammed his batting helmet on the ground and let out a primal scream. Thompson’s hit made it an 8-2 game, and and Lucas Elliott followed with an RBI double to provide the final margin. “We were all kind of dead the whole game, so I got a little electric there,” Thompson said. “I tried to spark some energy there.” Donoho broke a 2-2 tie with two runs in the third.

The victory earned the sixth-seeded Falcons a quarterfinal matchup with No. 3 Piedmont on Monday at 6:30 p.m. The Falcons will likely either Peyton Webb or Blake Sewell, Donoho coach Steve Gendron said. “It’s going to be a good matchup,” Gendron said. “They’re a good team. Obviously, they’ve had a whole lot of success. I think we’re a good team, too, so we’re looking forward to competing against them on Monday.”

Weaver finished the county tournament 1-1, having beaten Anniston 19-9 right before playing Donoho. “We got better today,” Weaver coach Jeremy Harper said. “I thought the first few innings against Anniston, we were lethargic. We were just slow getting going, and then we had a big inning, and that sparked us for the remainder of the day. “We barreled some balls up against a good 2A team in Donoho. I knew they were going to be competitive, and we competed until the very last inning, when we just got behind in some counts, but we played decent, which is promising for area play and the rest of the season.”

WEAVER 19, ANNISTON 9: Elijah Smith hit a walk-off, inside-the-park home run, and Weaver ended it with a six-run fifth inning. Peyton Martin also hit an inside-the-park homer and finished with two hits and two RBIs. Jaxson Bryant went 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs, and Weaver got two hits apiece from Smith, Dalton Homesley, Christian Marturello and Zack Garner. Homesley hit a triple and Smith a double. Rabon Kirk went complete on the mound, giving up one earned run. He also finished with two hits, including a double, and four RBIs. Dylan Goodson, Andrew Nelson and Rasheed Coleman each had a hit and RBI for Anniston. “We did good, but we just had too many errors in the field,” Anniston coach Casey Whitfield said. “We could’ve done better, if we didn’t have those errors in the outfield. “That’s the best we’ve hit the ball, though.”
