Georgetown rallies to topple Milton, forces winner-take-all Dist. 3 game

MILTON – Kenseth Taylor’s single Friday night was hit just hard enough to get through a drawn-in infield, and as a result the Georgetown 9- and 10-year old baseball all-star team forced a winner-take-all District III championship game versus tournament host Milton.

Batting with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the sixth inning, Taylor lined his two-RBI single to right and lifted Georgetown to a 5-4 victory over previously unbeaten Milton. The teams will meet again in Milton Saturday, 7 p.m., to decide the District III champion.

Three Milton errors allowed Georgetown to load the bases and set the stage for Taylor, whose single plated teammates Talan Savage and Cole Rogers. Taylor finished the game 3-for-3 with a walk.

Georgetown took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the second only to watch Milton plate three runs of its own the next half inning to knot the contest.

Kye Wells singled and later scored on a wild pitch to give Milton its only lead of the game, 4-3, in the top of the fifth. Wells also singled and scored in the third inning, as did teammate Paris Mitchell.

Rogers doubled and scored in Georgetown’s second inning rally that also included a base hit from Breydon Tidwell, who crossed the plate during the frame as well.
