    MONTGOMERY – Springville’s Tigers posted nine runs in the top of the third inning to take control of game 2 of the AHSAA Class 5A State Baseball Championship Series at Riverwalk Stadium Friday, but then had to hold on at the end as Briarwood Christia­­­n scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh. The Tigers won 12-9 to send the series into the deciding game early Friday afternoon.

Reliever Clayton Tittle pitched 2 2/3 inning of middle relief to get the win. Briarwood’s big hit of the inning was a two-RBI single by Carson McKinney
