Two-out, two-run rally leads Plant City to walk-off victory against Plant

By Jarrett Guthrie, editor

PLANT CITY – The easy part for Plant City senior Hunter Emerine was already done as he strode to the plate in the seventh inning of a tied, Class 8A-Region 2 semifinal game. In his mind, Emerine was already celebrating.

“Before I walked up, I’d already gotten a hit,” Emerine said. “I told myself in my head I got a hit and then I got it done.”

"Got it done" he most assuredly did. With two outs and runners on the corners, Emerine laced a line drive single into right field sending in Cole Cothren for the winning run as Plant City rallied with two runs in the seventh to defeat Plant 3-2.

“That moment ranks right there at the top,” Emerine said. “We’ve had a bunch of big moments this year and I’ve been able to come through when my guys have put me in great situations.”
