Enterprise again stayed alive in the Dixie Pre-Majors World Series, holding off a late rally and defeating Portland, Tenn., 6-5 in an elimination game.
Andrew Cashin pitched 6 1/3 innings before having to leave due to his pitch count. The Aces were up 6-1 at that point and Tennessee had a runner on first.
But a walk and an error loaded the bases – then a grand slam cleared them and pulled Portland within a run at 6-5.
Reliever Lane Danford entered and got a strikeout and a fly ball to end the game.
Enterprise is one of four teams left in the World Series. It will play Tuesday at 1 p.m. against the winner of unbeatens Hernando County (Fla.), which beat the Aces in the opening game of the Series, and Louisiana.
The Hernando County-Louisiana loser will face once-beaten Mississippi on Tuesday at 10 a.m.
