Good Hope’s Caleb Rusk drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs, scoring Colten Whatley and lifting the Raiders to a 7-6 home victory against Hanceville in a Class 4A, Area 11 clash on Tuesday.

Good Hope (9-10) entered the seventh inning trailing 6-3 but used its patience to chop away at the deficit.

Preston Seymore led off the frame with a single, and Lane Speegle

followed with a walk.

The Bulldogs, though, quickly recorded two outs and seemed to be in control of the game.

Unfortunately for the road team, it soon lost control of the strike zone — and the Raiders took full advantage.

Paydon Bagwell drew a walk to load the bases, and Whatley, Lawton Farr and Travis Brock were soon issued free passes as well to tie things up at 6-apiece.

Rusk then walked on five pitches to seal the walk-off win for coach Mitch Witcher’s group.

"Very happy with the win," Witcher said. "There were times throughout the game that things didn't go our way. The kids stayed positive and disciplined throughout, and things worked out for us. We were very fortunate today and must play better on Thursday. Coach (Michael) Chandler does a great job, and they will be ready to play. It was a crazy game. It has a been a crazy year, but the boys have worked hard."

Morgan Cook spearheaded Good Hope with a pair of hits and an RBI, while Bagwell (RBI), Whatley (RBI), Seymore and Speegle each tallied one hit. Farr, Brock and Rusk each netted an RBI.

Zach Campbell led Hanceville with three hits and an RBI. Bo Joles (two hits and three RBIs), Adam Cooper (two hits and one RBI), Dylan Twilley (one hit and one RBI), Damon Hackney (hit) and Barrett Hardin (hit) also pitched in offensively for the Bulldogs (5-17).
