In a pair of unlikely finishes, the DeKalb County Tiger baseball team took second place in the District 7-AA Tournament in Baxter, Wednesday night.
The Tigers had to rally from two runs down in the bottom of the seventh inning to eliminate Smith County, 7-6, in the loser's bracket final. The DC boys then let a two-run lead slip away in the bottom of the seventh against top-seeded Upperman in the championship game, and lost, 3-2, in eight innings.
DeKalb County and Smith County played four scoreless innings with just hit between them in the first game. The Owls finally struck with a run in the top of the fifth inning, and the Tigers countered with two runs in the bottom of the inning.
