Lassiter scored four runs in the first inning and then made the lead stand up as it defeated Carrollton 6-3 in Game 3 of the second-round Class AAAAAA state playoff matchup.

The victory moved the Trojans into the state quarterfinals, where they will travel to Valdosta next week. The series will start with a doubleheader Tuesday, and a Game 3 Wednesday, if necessary.

The first inning started with Parker Hughes being hit by a pitch, and Bradley Frye reached on a bunt single. After Cameron Campbell walked to load the bases, Ryan Martin singled to left to drive in Hughes.

Frye scored on a double play and Campbell scored when Kyle Carlson reached on an error. Carlson then scored on a two-out, two-strike single by Max Beck-Berendsen.

Campbell later added a couple insurance runs with a two-run homer to right.

Trey Griffin pitched five strong innings to get the win, while Walker Noland worked the last two innings to earn the save.
