Big week ahead for Diamond Trojans

By Ken K. Green The Diamond Trojans face their most important week of the season to date as they host Putnam County today and travel to Cochran Friday to face Bleckley County for what could decide the Region 4-AA baseball championship. Last week Lamar won region games over Northeast Macon and Monticello and a non-region contest against Georgia Military and stand at 15-4 overall and 9-1 in region play tied with Bleckley for the top spot. The Royals (12-9, 9-1) beat the Trojans 8-5 in extra innings here three weeks ago. Lamar started the week with a 13-1 win over Northeast in Macon. Josh Heflin hit a pair of doubles and scored three runs to lead the Trojans. Marcus Fuller drove home two runs with a pair of hits. Nick Harden got the win on the mound making his first start of the season and kept the Warriors hitless while striking out three in three innings. Heflin and Ivan Banks had two hits each to lead the Trojans to a 10-5 win at Monticello. The game was tied 4-4 going into the sixth but Lamar scored three times each in the sixth and the seventh innings. Jacob Platt, Austin Donley, Jacob Efird, Marcus Fuller, Parker McBroom, and Blake Redding all had one hit each. Morgan Ford pitched five innings allowing four hits and one earned run. Eli Housley pitched an inning and a third surrendering one earned run. Harden came in and recorded the final two outs of the game. It was a hit parade in Milledgeville Saturday as the Trojans routed Georgia Military 21-3. Donley had three hits and five RBI. McBroom had three hits and scored three runs. Heflin drove home three runs with three hits and stole a base. Platt had two hits, drove home three runs and scored three runs. Efird started on the mound and went three innings allowing a hit and two walks while striking out six. Harden pitched 1.2 innings yielding a run on four walks and striking out two.
