Taylorville sweeps Wesson in south 2A baseball semis

When making a deep run into post-season play, many baseball coaches will tell you that their team will go as far as their pitching will take them.  The two teams that battled in the semi-finals of the South 2A tournament this past weekend both had great pitching.  One, however, dominated the other, and that team moved on to the south state finals.
Taylorsville swept Wesson 2 games to none in this series, winning 4-0 on Saturday at Taylorsville and 15-2 at Wesson on Monday.  The Tartar pitching staff allowed the Cobras only 4 hits, two in each ballgame, while the offense got going and hammered the Cobra pitchers for a total of 16 hits in both games combined.
The Tartars and Cobras forged a no score ballgame into the bottom of the fifth in Game One, until Taylorsville struck for 2 runs.  The home team picked up 2 more in the bottom of the sixth to earn a 4-0 win.
In Game 2 at Wesson on Monday, the Tartars held a slim 3-2 lead going into the top of the fifth.  They picked up 7 runs in that frame to blow the game open, then added 5 more in the top of the seventh to close out the Cobras and advance to face either Richton or Loyd Star this weekend.
Wesson finished 22-8.
