Journeigh Doray’s two-run, walk-off triple in the bottom of the ninth lifted Battery Creek to a 5-4 win over visiting Hanahan in a rematch of last year’s Class 3A Lower State championship series Thursday.
The Hawks took a 4-2 lead in the top of the ninth, but Emily Crosby’s RBI double cut the deficit in half and Doray followed with a game-ending two-run triple to center to give the Dolphins the thrilling win.
Alexis Ortiz went the distance in the circle for the Dolphins, racking up 18 strikeouts while allowing three runs, seven hits, and three walks.
Ortiz also was 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs.
The Dolphins (5-7) travel to Ridgeland-Hardeeville for a Region 8-3A game at 6 p.m. Friday.
