RALEIGH — South Granville erupted for five runs in the third inning to come from behind and then held off Randleman 8-4 in the decisive third game of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 2-A baseball championship series at Doak Field at Dail Park on the campus of N.C. State University.

South Granville jumped in front with three runs on four hits in the second, but Randleman countered by scoring four in its half of the second, all with two outs to take a 4-3 lead. But the Vikings got a two-run double by Cameron Willis, one of three hits he had on the day, and a run-scoring double by Tucker Britt as the big blows in the five-run third.

Willis, Britt, and Austin Bailey all collected three hits for the winners.

Justin Brown, who came on to pitch in relief in game three, was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the championship. He had pitched four effective innings in Friday’s opener as South Granville took a 9-2 win, and then hurled five innings in the clincher and did not allow a run, shutting down the Tigers.

Randleman had tied the series earlier on Saturday with an 11-1 victory shortened by the 10-run rule with a nine-run fifth inning.

In the final game, Caleb Webster and Tyler Adams each had two hits for the Tigers, who completed a 27-6 season. Randleman was in the NCHSAA baseball championships for the third time in the last five years.

South Granville, in the finals for the first time since 1982, ended the year 25-3.
