Game six of the American Legion baseball Area IV semifinals took two days. It began at South Point High School on Tuesday, but was suspended in the middle of the second inning because of rain with the Gaston Braves leading Cherryville Post 100 3-0.

The game was resumed Wednesday at 5 PM at Fraley Field in Cherryville. The Braves (sponsored by posts 144-266) scored another pair of runs in the bottom of the second inning. Then came a lightning delay and more rain and the game was again suspended until shortly before 8 PM. In the top of the third, Cherryville--although playing at home, officially the 'visiting' team--scored three runs on three hits to cut the lead to 5-3. The Braves scored a single run in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-3.

In the fifth inning, Joseph Webb slammed a long home run, and the Grand Slam blast gave Post 100 the lead 7-6. But that lead didn't last; in their half of the inning, the Braves scored a run to tie the game at 7-all. Nobody scored in the sixth inning or the seventh.

In the top of the 8th, Landon Hahn led off with a double. Zane Brockman attempted a sacrifice bunt, but beat it out and Post 100 had runners at first and second with nobody out. Kohl Irby's fly ball was good enough for a sacrifice and Hahn scored to give Cherryville the lead 8-7. Brockman then moved to second base on a wild pitch. After Ashton Pope walked, Post 100 had runners at first and second again, now with one out. Landon Jenkins then hit a line drive fly to left field that was caught for the second out, and Jacob Hamrick's fly to right field became the third.

In the bottom of the eighth, Landon Hahn, who came on in relief in the sixth inning, got his fifth strikeout. A ground out to first was followed by a two-out single by Caleb Burr, but Lauren Hall's stroke to third was played well by Zane Brockman and Post 100 won the game and the west region Area IV semifinal series 4 games to 2. They'll now play the Queen City Mustangs at Fraley Field on Friday, but win or lose in that game, Wednesday's win gets them a spot in the state tournament at Campbell University starting Tuesday (July 26th).

Heroes of the game were Hahn, who pitched three innings in relief, allowed only the one eighth inning hit, struck out five, and in addition to being the winning pitcher, he went two for five batting; and, of course, Joseph Webb, who drove in five runs, four of them on that grand slam HR.  Post 100 had a total of 12 hits off four Gaston Braves pitchers.
