“Of course, it never hurts when (Burton) Dulaney is on the mound,” Harrison added.
After the explosive Game 1 hitting performance by the Vikings, Dulaney took the mound in Game 2 to notch 11 strikeouts.
He gave up four hits and three runs, two being unearned on an error in the sixth.
“(Dulaney) is a sophomore that’s beyond his years,” said Harrison. “It seems like when the game is on the line and our backs are against the wall, he’s at his best.
“He’s the perfect Game 2 pitcher, and he put us right at the situation that we like (today).”
The Tigers made sure to keep it rolling from the plate as well.
The second inning saw Darlington’s bat around, with David Grindstaff, Brad Butler and Breck Tillery each collecting an RBI in the inning.
Miles Bearden and Drake Frix also had a hit in the inning with Logan Rice and Burton Dulaney getting on base with walks.
The Tigers surged for three more runs in the fourth and one more in the sixth, while relying on a sharp defense to secure the 7-3 win.
Grindstaff and Dulaney each went 3-for-4 in the win. Butler collected three RBIs with two walks and a sacrifice fly.
Tillery and Bearden both went 2-for-4.
In the first game, Logan Rice pitched four innings, and Robert Muschamp pitched the last two innings, each giving up five runs.
Bearden and Dulaney each had a hit.
With a deep pitching staff and a little bit of confidence, Harrison said his team is ready to “take care of business” in Game 3 in order to advance to the third round.
“One game away from the Final Four is no small feat,” he said, “but we feel confident.
“We only threw three arms (Wednesday) which means we have six more for (today), so the next man’s up, and they’ll be ready.”
