Region 1-5A baseball: Mosley falls to Clay

GREEN COVE SPRINGS — There was no miracle comeback this time.

A year after reaching the Class 6A Final Four by rallying from a six-run deficit, the Dolphins couldn’t recover from an early collapse and lost 8-3 to Clay on Tuesday in the Region 1-5A baseball championship game.

Mosley saw its season end 26-4. Clay takes a 22-7 record in a 5A state semifinal game May 21 in Fort Myers.

The Dolphins had ridden the right arm of freshman Weston Bizzle to consecutive region triumphs over Wakulla and Rutherford prior to meeting the Blue Devils.

On Tuesday night, he simply couldn’t locate the plate and Mosley faced an immediate 5-1 deficit.

“I felt bad for Bizzle,” Dolphins coach Todd Harless said. “His curveball, for some reason he was hitting guys. It’s what you do when you’re overly excited.

“It was just one of those nights you don’t have it. We were able to get freshman Michael Cullen into the game and he got some experience.”
