The Appling Christian baseball team enjoyed the opportunity to play three games at home on Eagle Field this past week. Tuesday, March 26 featured a double header with King’s Way Christian from Douglasville. Andrew Phillips would start game one on the mound going seven innings. Phillips would yield four runs, two of which were earned, with five hits, walking five and striking out five. With the game tied at four apiece in the eighth inning Daniel Beasley would take over the pitching duties and pick up the win with one inning of work. Beasley would only give up one hit in the final inning of play. The King’s Way Crusaders would intentionally walk both Rex Cox and Andrew Phillips to load the bases and pitch to Senior Zack Carter. Carter fell behind with a one and two count, but would continue to foul off pitches extending the at bat until drawing a walk and plating the winning RBI.
