Game 2 

The Rocky victory set up a winner take all second game.  Rocky picked up where they left off in game one and jumped out to an early 3-0 lead on Cherokee Trial thanks in part to a homerun by Easton Dolan in the bottom of the second innings.  

Cherokee Trial got new life in the game when Eric Cox hit a 2 run homerun to right center field in the top of the 3rd inning to cut the lead to 3-2.  The Cougars wasted no time taking the lead in the game in the top of the 4th inning on a 2 run double by John-Michael Osley.  This was the first of 2 run scoring double Osley had on the day.  He finished the day with 3 RBI. 

Jerome Bohannon was on the mound for Cherokee Trial and allowed only 1 run from the bottom of the 3rd on.  Cherokee Trial added 4 more runs in the top of the 6th and 1 more in the 7th to take a 9-3 lead into the bottom of the 7th.  

Bohannon seemed to get stronger as the game went on and got Spencer Gendreau looking for the final out of the game, giving the Cougars the 5A State Baseball Title.
