  • Down a run with two outs in the top of the seventh, senior Joe Cannady came through in the clutch with an RBI single to tie the score 4-4 between Augusta and Circle at Monday's baseball regional tournament in Clearwater.
    The Orioles retired the side to force extra innings, but in the bottom of the eighth, Circle put together a couple of hits and walks to set up Ben Griffes. He came through with a walk-off RBI base hit to eliminate the Orioles and end their season.
    Augusta finishes with a 10-11 record.
    Circle advances to play AVCTL-Div. III champion Mulvane Wednesday. El Dorado, seeded No. 7, upset Independence 2-1 and will play Clearwater in the other semifinal. The Indians beat Rose Hill 4-2.
