The Eagles (31-5-1) loaded the bases with two outs, but the Bearcats closed the door to advance to their second state title game in three years where they will face Clifton at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Beckville (35-4) got an RBI triple with one out in the first by Ben Bridges to take a 1-0 lead.

Michael Mize tripled with one out and scored on an RBI single by Ethan Harris and Clayton Burnett added an RBI double to left.

Lopez allowed four runs on six hits and eight strikeouts in five innings. Lindsay allowed no runs on seven hits and nine strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.

Brock, which was in its first state tournament since 2012, left 10 runners on base while Beckville left seven.
