The Darlington baseball team clinched the Region 6-A title on Tuesday in the same manner that the Tigers have won
most of their games this season — with a bang.
Led by Lee Couch’s three-hit, three-RBI performance and Alec Redden’s grand slam, the Tigers blasted North Cobb
Christian, 12-1, in a 6-A road game.
With the victory, the Tigers (18-5, 14-3) sewed up the region title and locked down a No. 1 seed for the upcoming state
“We’re excited,” said Darlington coach Kent Harrison. “And I am proud of the boys. Since early in the season, we have
had the goal of winning the region title — and it’s good to work hard for something and achieve it.”
Darlington’s first-round opponent in the state tournament has not yet been determined. The Tigers will face the winner
of a play-in game between the 8-A’s No. 3 seed and 9-A’s No. 4 seed.
In Tuesday’s game, Russ Arnold earned the win by working five strong innings. He did not allow an earned run and
finished with three strikeouts.
Lou Roland and Carson Googe had two hits each, with one of Roland’s hit being a double.
The Tigers play their regular-season finale today, visiting Excel Christian.
