The Macon County Tigers got three wins in the last full week of the regular season. Two were shut-outs.

On Monday Apr 24th Macon hosted Clay County. Seven innings in the bottom of the first set the tone as Macon cruised to an 11-1 victory in six innings.

Braylon Flowers was again on the mound and got the win, throwing two innings allowing three hits and one earned run. Chase Keene came on in relief and threw four innings allowing only one hit.

Braxton Lloyd had three hits and four RBIs while Matthew Wheeley had two hits, two runs scored, and two RBIs.

On Tuesday Apr 25th Macon traveled to take on a really good Watertown Purple Tiger team. In what turned out to be a pitching duel, Macon pushed one run across in the second inning which proved to be the difference. With only five hits total by each team, Macon won 1-0.

Jacob Hunt threw a masterful complete game for the win. Going the full seven innings he allowed a scattered five hits with no walks and eight strike-outs. Jordan Rogers, Kaden Woodard, Hayden Dean, Malo, and Wheeley had the only hits while Malo scored the winning run.

Hits by Rogers, Tyler Gregory, Woodard, Landon Warner, Roman Brawner, Dean, Wheeley, Marcus Jones, Jay Wilson, Keene, and Gage Jones all contributed to the victory.
