Gutsy Performance by Malone Not Enough as Dragons Fall 2-1 In Game 2

Luke Malone threw a gem in Game 2 but the Tigers scratched out a run in the bottom of the 9th to force a deciding game 3 in a Region 2 Quarterfinal Friday afternoon.

After Klein Collins took the lead in the fourth, the Dragons tied the game with a single run in the sixth.

After Jordan Williams and Dalton Watts reached on errors, Williams scored on a sacrifice fly from Aidan Shepardson as the throw to the plate bounced off Williams’s helmet to knot the game at 1-1.

No one got any more offense going until the Tigers scored a run in the bottom of the ninth on a two-out walkoff hit.

Shepardson was the only Dragon to get a hit with his two singles.

Malone threw 8 1/3 innings, allowing a single run on only four hits and two walks, the longest outing of the year for a Dragon starter.
