|Monday, May 7, 2012|
8A TOURNAMENT AT FCS -- Watertown and Friendship battled down to the wire in Monday's District 8A tournament opener, as the Commanders prevailed 3-1 behind a four-hit pitching performance from Kyle Wood.
Wood (7-0) struck out five and walked just one batter as FCS held off a determined Watertown crew, led by senior righty Ben Bain.
Bain used an assortment of off-speed pitches to keep the Commanders off-stride, limiting FCS to just seven hit. He walked five batters and helped his own cause with a ground-out RBI in the top of the sixth.
Austin Godwin belted an RBI double in the first and Drew Erie added a sacrifice fly in the fourth for the Commanders.
FCS (32-2) is scheduled to play Trousdale County Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the finals of the winner's bracket finals.
TCHS defeated Gordonsville 15-8 in Monday's second game. Watertown (12-12-1) will take on Gordonsville Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in a loser-out contest.
