2A baseball: All Saints' rallies to dispatch Tampa Prep

TAMPA — After digging an early 3-0 deficit, Winter Haven All Saints' struck back quickly and held on for a 6-5 victory at Tampa Prep in a 2A region quarterfinal Tuesday.

The Terrapins' first four batters all reached base. Matt George, Corbin Hayes and Joey Bobo eventually came around to score for a 3-0 lead after one inning.

The Saints cut the lead to 3-2 when starting pitcher Corey Topa helped his own cause with a two-run home run.

Trailing 4-2 going into the third inning, All Saints' had five straight hitters reach base via a single or walk to chase Tampa Prep starter Rob Daisley after he walked four in two-plus innings.

"Four walks kill you in high school baseball and that's what beat us tonight," Terps coach A.J. Hendrix said.

With the bases loaded, Carson Fullmer drove in the go-ahead runs on a two-run single to make it 6-4.

Tampa Prep (15-13) threatened in the bottom of the seventh as it put the first two runners on base but could muster only one run.

Grant Porter relieved Topa in the fourth and allowed just one run in 32/3 innings of work to get the win for the Saints (22-7).

Freshman Nick Adams kept Tampa Prep close as he pitched five shutout innings in relief of Daisley.

"He did a great job coming in for us and not allowing a run the rest of the game and it will be nice having him for three more years," Hendrix said.

Wes Jarrell led the Terps with three hits in four at-bats.
