GOLCONDA -- Wes McGuire's leadoff homer in the bottom of the sixth snapped a 2-2 tie and turned out to be the difference in Gallatin County's 3-2 win over Pope County for a 1A Baseball Regional Championship.

The Hawks trailed 1-0 until Daine Hish connected for a two-run homer in the fourth giving Gallatin County a 2-1 lead.

The Pirates tied the game in the fifth on a bases loaded walk, setting up McGuire's heroics an inning later.
