Creekside (21-7) eliminated St. Augustine (18-12) in an intra-county regional playoff game at Flagler College’s Drysdale Field.
Two thousand, five hundred and fifty five minutes after he was scheduled to start, St. Augustine’s Nick Phifer delivered the first pitch.
It was an 84-mph fastball over the outside corner that Creekside’s Connor Hults flipped toward short.
The two would meet again. Their roles would be reversed; but, before they did, the Knights and St. Augustine played nine high-stakes innings in an FHSAA Region 1-7A baseball semifinal.
Creekside staved off the top of the St. Augustine order to win 3-2 in extra innings on a rainy Thursday afternoon at Drysdale Field at the Flagler College Athletic Complex.
