It’s not always the same person and not always the same situation, which makes Alabama Christian’s 4-0 start in area play not only surprising but satisfying to head coach Don Gilliam.

“It’s somebody different every day coming through, which is a good sign,” Gilliam said. “We keep preaching the little bitty things – it’s the bunt to get the runner over, when you get a guy on third it’s hitting the ball the other way. Because baseball turns on a dime.”

On Friday afternoon, the game between St. James and ACA turned on a 3-ball-1-strike pitch that Dillon Hutchinson sent sailing over the leftfield fence, wiping out a 2-0 St. James lead. Hutchinson also delivered the game winner, a sacrifice fly in the sixth to break the 2-2 tie and propel the Eagles to a 5-2 victory.
