Eagles poised to be dangerous seed in the playoffs
Eastside completed a sweep of Spalding in a doubleheader at home on Thursday to give the Eagles a shot at obtaining a No. 3 seed in the state playoffs at minimum. With the weirdly constructed way Eastside’s region is set up, despite going 15-3 in Region 4-AAAA, the Eagles will likely be the No. 4 seed forcing them to travel to play Wayne County in the first round of the state playoffs.
“I feel like we’re a whole lot better than a fourth place team, but it’s out of our hands. We had one bad week. We’ve only lost in the region one week,” Bruce Evans, Eagles’ head baseball coach, said.
Eastside will finish tied with Pike County for the second best record in the region, yet the Eagles won’t have the opportunity to host their own playoff
Chase Raines had a great game one against Spalding on Thursday. He went 2-3 with one run and an RBI in the opening contest.
