Panama City, FL----The Bay Tornadoes rack up a win on senior night on the home field, taking care of the Wewahitchka Gators 12-2.
Bay actually fell behind when Wewa scored twice in the top of the third, one on an rbi double by Charlie Larid, the other on a sacrifice fly to left by Chance Harper. Dylan Mason catching Harper's liner in medium left field and threw a strike to the plate, but Chipper Wood avoided the tag with a nice slide.
Bay though countered with a run on an infield single in the bottom of the third, then took the lead for good with five runs in the bottom of the 4th. Three of those runs coming on a bases loaded double to center by Garrett Whittle.
Two more runs scored on a sharp single to center by Mason, which gave Bay a 6-2 lead. The Tornadoes would add another 6 and win by the 12-2 score.
The Gators now set their sights on the 1A-2 district tournament next week in Blountstown. Bay plays one more regular season game, at Bozeman Thursday, before heading into the 5A-1 tournament which the Tornadoes will host next week.
