Conner Alford (Tattnall in Macon) threw 3 scoreless innings in relief to give the Knights a chance to get back in the game. Adam Eggnatz threw the final 3 frames giving up 2 unearned runs, which proved to be the difference. Offensively the Knights were led at the plate by Blake Shouse’s 1 for 2 day with 3 RBI’s a walk, hit by pitch, and sac fly. Drew Kelley and Adam Eggnatz each had multiple hits in the game. The Knights loaded the bases in the 9th but Southern Union reliever Locke St. John struck out the final two Knights to preserve the win.
