By East Alabama Sports Today

Jesse Sellers has been working his way back into baseball form from a major leg injury during football season and Thursday he delivered for the Ohatchee Indians in a big way.

Sellers went 3-for-3 with six RBIs as the Indians crushed Wellborn 14-4 in their area opener. The catcher had an RBI single in the first, a run-scoring sacrifice in the second and two-run singles in the third and fourth.

Winning pitcher Grayson Alward went 2-for-3 with four RBIs and Larry Noah went 3-for-4 with two RBIs. Baylee Graham, Kevin Williamson and Ben Glass each had two hits in the 16-hit attack.

Donoho 11, JCA 1: Jase Alderman went 3-for-3, Judson Billings and Reid Willamon both drove in three runs and Hall Billings struck out 12 in the five-inning compete game.

Piedmont 10, Pleasant Valley 7: Nick Johnson’s two-run double highlighted a three-run fourth that put the Bulldogs back on top after the Raiders tied the game 5-5 with four runs on one hit in the top of the inning. Johnson drove in three runs in the game, Jack Hayes went 3-for-4 and winning pitcher Mason Mohon and Logan Pruitt both had two hits and two RBIs.

Oxford 11, Central Phenix City 1: Jarin Turner went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and pitched a six-inning complete game with seven strikeouts. The Jackets scored five runs in the sixth to walk it off. Brody Syer homered and Reece Howard, Brennan McCullough, Caden Higgins and Brantley Bargerhuff each had two hits in the 14-hit attack.

Hewitt Trussville 3, Oxford 2: The Huskies pushed a run across in the top of the seventh inning and held on as the Yellow Jackets got the tying run in scoring position with one out in the bottom of the inning. Brody Syer went 3-for-4 with a two-run game-tying homer in the third for the Jackets and Jarin Turner went 2-for-3.

Hewitt Trussville 1, White Plains 0: Michael Fowler singled home Carson Skipper with no outs in the bottom of the ninth to spoil a brilliant outing on the mound by White Plains’ Andrew Cronan. Skipper opened the inning with a double and scored on Fowler’s hit.

Cronan allowed only five hits and struck out nine. He threw 107 pitches, 70 for strikes. The Wildcats had six hits, two by Charlie Huey.

Hokes Bluff 5, Glencoe 0: Dylan Teague fashioned the one-hit shutout.

Westbrook Christian 28. Gaston 0: Garret Kennedy threw a 51-pitch perfect game with 12 strikeouts.
