Tuesday was quite a day for Starkville Academy's Griffin Little.

Just a few hours after signing a scholarship to attend Meridian Community College, Griffin was on the mound helping the Volunteers to an 8-5 win over Bayou Academy in the AAA playoffs.

Little pitched six solid innings and the SA offense gave him an 8-0 lead to work with.

The second and possible third games of the series will now be played Wednesday in Cleveland with first pitch scheduled for 5 p.m.
