Demopolis season ends with home sweep

Demopolis’ tremendous season came to an abrupt close Friday night as the Tigers were swept by Brookwood (18-20) 9-0 and 5-3 in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs.

Demopolis (23-10) had an opportunity to extend its season in the top of the seventh inning in the second game of the night. Trailing 5-1, Alex Sturdivant legged out an infield single before William Stewart coaxed his way on base with a walk. Two batters later, Wesley Anderson smoked a two-RBI double to right-center field to cut the deficit to 5-3. After a grueling at-bat, Daniel Sturdivant stroked a ball that appeared destined for right field before the Brookwood second baseman sprung into the air to snag the line drive before firing to second to double off Anderson and end the game.

Demopolis got its first run of the game in the top of the sixth inning when Payne Hasty drew a one-out walk that scored Walker Davis.

Brookwood got on the board first with two runs in the third inning and added three more in the bottom of the sixth. The final blow of the game for Brookwood was a rocket home run to right field by Austin Alexander.

Mason Rogers worked all six innings for the Tigers in game two, scattering four hits and striking out 11 batters in the contest.

The Tigers took one on the chin in the first game of the night, seeing Brookwood score three runs in the first, one in the third, two in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh.

The Tigers left the bases loaded in the fourth inning, stranding six runners over the first four innings of the game.

The wins marked Brookwood’s 16th victory in its last 17 ball games.

Thrasher singled and walked on the night. Alex Sturdivant singled twice, and scored a run. William Stewart singled, walked and scored. Rogers singled twice and set up Davis to score a run. Anderson singled, doubled and had two RBIs. Davis singled. Stroud walked and singled three times. Daniel Sturdivant singled. Hasty and Louis Stuedeman each drew a walk in the game.
