On a night where Andrew Gist didn’t have his best stuff on the mound, the senior left-hander compensated for it at the plate. Gist lifted two solo home runs over the right field fence in the first three innings and those hits proved to be difference makers, as Forsyth Central knocked off region-leading Creekview 9-7 on Tuesday in Cumming. The Bulldogs (7-6, 3-4 Region 7-AAAAA) handed the Grizzlies (6-5, 5-1) their first region loss of the season and have now won their last two region games after dropping four out of their first five.
