TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Lincoln Trojans lost a heartbreaker in the FHSAA Class 5A regional finals Monday night, falling 7-6 to Columbia. The Trojans trailed 4-2, but scored four runs in the top of the seventh to keep their dreams of a state title alive. The Tigers responded in the bottom frame, scoring three runs to win by walk-off, and seal up their spot in the state semifinals.

In Georgia, the Thomasville Bulldogs will play for a state championship next week, as they took the first two games in their best of three series with Pace Academy. Witt Wetherington hit a home run in the sixth inning of game one to seal up the 2-1 win, while the Bulldogs had a big fifth inning to clinch game two 7-5, and in turn, the series. The AA state championship series starts Monday, and will be played at Georgia Southern.
