|Cougars baseball season ends|
Franklin Academy ended its baseball season in a heartbreaker as the Cougars fell to Wilkinson County Christian Academy 13-12 as the Rams scored three runs in their last at-bat in the third place game of the MPSA District 6-A Tournament in Minden April 15.
Franklin finished second to WCCA in district and lost to Glenbrook in the first round of the tournament.
Franklin ends its season at 11-6.
"We played bad Monday and turned around and played WCCA a real good ballgame," said Franklin coach Ryan Ellington. "Both teams played well, we just came out on the short end. Neither one of us should have been playing for the No. 3 spot, but that's the way it fell. I hate it for my seniors. They really stepped up in that game."
WCCA, which had 16 hits in the game, laid down two squeeze bunts that led to a couple of early runs — one during a three-run rally in the bottom of the first and another in the bottom of the third that tied the game at 4-4.
After Franklin Academy took a 6-4 lead in the top of the fifth inning, the Rams answered with a six-run rally in the bottom of the fifth for a 10-6 lead.
The Cougars responded with three runs each in the top of the sixth and seventh innings for the 12-10 lead. They were led by Haring, who went 3-for-4 with a double and a home run.
Franklin had three home runs in the contest, as Kelly Don Armstrong, Caleb Haring and Jake Wright all had round-trippers.
Haring also doubled and singled, while Wright singled. Justin Johns, Dusty Barefield and Armstrong had two hits each.
Ellington loses six seniors from this year's team.
"We just never seemed to come together as a team during the season the way we needed to to get things done," Ellington said. "We never seemed to hit all on cylinders."
