It's been taking Alcovy a little longer, but the results have been consistent in the final games of the 2012 regular season - wins.

The Tigers have won five out of six and three straight, including a 2-1 win over Ola on Monday.

However, it took Alcovy eight innings, for the second straight game, to pick up the victory.

Trailing 1-0, the Tigers (12-9, 8-4 3-AAAA) rallied behind two big hits for the win.

Jake Jones hit a solo home run to tie it up, and in the bottom of the eighth inning, Bowen Braswell stepped up. Braswell hit a solo shot over the fence for the walk-off home run.

"The ball just wasn't falling for us early on but we got the hits when we needed them the most," Alcovy coach Casey Bates said.

The Tigers came up with six hits, one more than the Mustangs (11-10, 6-5).

Alcovy, however, played strongly on defense, giving up just one error, in the infield, leading to Ola's sole run.
Austin Fuller and Jake Jones pitched for the Tigers, with Jones getting the victory.

"Our pitchers have been doing well throughout the year," Bates said. "We just have to play defense behind them and find a way to swing the bats at the same time."

Alcovy travels to McIntosh Friday before playing Upson Lee in a makeup game Monday.
