PINSON — Cody Wingard held Moody to four hits and struck out four batters, as Pinson Valley won 4-1 in a Class 5A Area 11 baseball game Tuesday.
The Indians won the game with a three-run sixth inning, set up by three singles. The scoring plays, though, came on a wild pitch that allowed Scott Falkinburg to come home, followed by three consecutive fielder’s choice plays that scored two more runs.
Jared McCurdy scored Pinson’s first run when he got a lead-off walk, moved to third base on two singles and scored on an error.
Moody’s run came in the sixth on a Ken’yada Teague double.
The win sets up a doubleheader that’s scheduled for Thursday to decide the area championship. A win for the Indians in either game would give them that championship and home-field advantage, as the Indians hold the tiebreaker over Springville by winning two of their three games.
