MAY 20, 2019 :: MARIETTA, GA -- Logan Ehorn may have won the biggest game in Dominion Christian history.
Ehorn pitched a complete game, scattering six hits and striking out six, to help lead the Knights to a 2-1 Game 3 victory over John Milledge Academy and the Georgia Independent School Association’s Class AAA state championship over the weekend at Mercer’s Claude Smith Field.
Dominion had won the series opener 8-4 on Friday, and a victory in Saturday’s first game would secure the title, but John Milledge forced Game 3 with its own 8-4 victory. In game three, Zayd Brannigan, who went 2-for-3 in the final game, drove in the Knights’ first run. With the score tied 1-1 in the sixth inning, Dominion took the lead when Ashton Whittaker started a two-out rally with a base hit. Trystin Merson (pinch runner) later scored on a double by Hunter Whittaker.
It was the first state title for Dominion (22-12), and the Knights drew out the suspense as long as possible. Leading 2-1 in the seventh, Ehorn worked his way out of a two-on, two-out jam to secure the victory.
