South Johnston holds off Cleveland on Johnson’s throw to the plate

Two days removed from helping lead his South Johnston baseball team to a one-run victory with a solid pitching performance, Joe Johnson and his arm was called upon yet again to snatch an important Two Rivers 3A Conference win at Cleveland. Johnson, this time positioned in center field, saved the day in the bottom of the seventh inning when, after hauling in Alan-Michael Hales’ fly ball for the second out, fired a bullet to catcher Zachary Bridges. Bridges turned to face a leaping Aaron Farmer, reached up to apply the tag and held onto the ball and for a 5-4 victory.
