#8 Sam Mudd’s Walkoff Homerun
With the year coming to a close, we take time to reminisce on the past year in sports. 2016 has been filled with countless games, memories, and championships that have added to the legacy of St.X’s athletic excellence. Now, as the crystal ball counts down to midnight, WSTX Sports would like to do a countdown of our own over the next few days. Let’s countdown the Top 10 Moments in Tiger Sports for the year of 2016!
In the second round of the state tournament, the Tiger Baseball team faced the defending state champions West Jessamine.
Current Louisville freshman Adam Elliot kept the Colts at bay, not allowing a single run through the sixth inning. The Tigers held a 2-0 lead heading into the seventh inning.
That’s when West Jessamine tied up the game and put the Tigers on edge, but that would not remain the case for long.
Sam Mudd was up to bat first at the bottom of the seventh inning. It was a 2-1 count and the Colts’ pitcher threw a fast ball high and inside. Mudd sent the ball flying over the left field fence to finish the ballgame.
With that win, the Tigers advanced to the state semifinals and from there… well we know what happened next.
