Logan Hornback hit a walk-off single in the eighth inning, and Cherokee beat Roswell 4-3 on Monday to secure a win over last year’s Class AAAAAA state runner-up.

After trailing by three runs going into the bottom of the fourth inning, the Warriors scored two runs on a two-out, two-run single by Ben Banas. That scored Aaron Veres and Hornback.

Cherokee (7-13, 3-6 Region 5AAAAAA) tied it in the sixth when Hornback singled, stole second and scored on a double by Trevor Nevill.

In the eighth, Veras reached first on an error, took second on an error and took third on a balk. He came home on a Hornback single.

Veras pitched all eight innings for the Warriors, giving up six hits, struck out four and one earned run.

Cherokee, which snapped a seven-game losing streak, will play at Roswell today.
