HS Baseball: Goodson Caps 5-Run 7th As Sharks Stay Alive

May River scored five runs in the seventh inning, capped by Tater Goodson’s game-winning RBI single, to keep its season alive with an 8-7 win over Dillon on Saturday.

The Sharks trailed 7-3 after allowing three runs in the top of the seventh, but they batted around in the bottom of the inning and scored the final three runs with two outs.

Goodson was hit by a pitch to start the frame and scored on Cooper George’s double. George came around on Jeffrey Hodge’s RBI single with one out, and Vance Summers added an RBI single with two out before back-to-back walks loaded the bases to set up Goodson’s walk-off single to left.

Hodge was 3-for-4 with a triple, an RBI, and three runs, while Goodson, Josh Patterson, and Andrew Perez each added two hits and an RBI.

The rally made a winner of Patterson, who recorded the final two outs in the seventh to get the Sharks out of a jam.

The Sharks (20-5) travel to Gilbert on Monday needing to beat the Indians twice to advance to the Lower State tournament. Gilbert beat May River 8-3 on Thursday.
