The second round of the Class AAAAA baseball playoffs wasn’t kind to Cherokee County.

Sequoyah and Creekview — the only local teams to advance to the second round — were both swept in doubleheaders Wednesday.

Creekview lost its opener with Loganville 13-1 in five innings. In the nightcap, the teams were tied 2-all after the Grizzlies’ Jack Mayo homered in the third inning, but Loganville poured on four runs in the fourth, on its way to a 6-3 victory.

Mayo went 2-for-3 with a pair of runs in the second game, while Kyle Wilkie was 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI. Case Carmichael struck out six in three innings of relief.

Any opportunities Creekview had to contend were hindered by its defense, which committed a total of seven errors in the doubleheader, which led to a total of nine unearned runs.

Sequoyah didn’t fare any better.

The Chiefs took a 3-0 led in the top of the fifth at Gainesville only to give up 11 runs in the bottom of the inning on two doubles, two errors and two singles. Gainesville added two more runs in the bottom of the sixth to end the game 13-3 with the mercy rule.

Tristan Roberts provided a bright spot for the Chiefs, going 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored.

Game 2 wasn’t much better. Gainesville scored a run in the top of the first and added another in the fourth. Sequoyah tied it with two runs in the fifth.

Gainesville added a run in the sixth, but a five-run seventh provided to be the end of the Chiefs. Sequoyah scored a run in the seventh, but it wasn’t enough.

Sequoyah outhit Gainesville 8-7, but it was hurt by an error and 10 walks issued by its pitchers.

At the plate, Jacob Cagle and Roberts were both 2-for-4 with a run scored. Evan Ezell was 1-for-2 with two RBIs and walk, while Grant Pfost was 1-for-1 with a run.
