Bud Henderson had a hunch his freshman could get the job done, so he followed his gut. With the game tied at 5-apiece in the bottom of the sixth inning, the North Forsyth head coach called on Ashley Barton to pinch hit with one out and Darrian Short on second. The move paid off, as Barton doubled down the left-field line and knocked in the go-ahead run.
