Zopf: Maybe it's how you start

Prep baseball: Region's top two teams face off tonight

They have eight returning starters off a team that went 21-7 in 2007 and are coming off an 18-2 rout of Johnson, their opponent returns seven starters from last year's state playoff team and is coming off a 16-1 win over Chestatee in which they pounded out 14 hits.

Gainesville and Flowery Branch meet tonight in an early-season matchup of the top two teams in Region 7-AAA that will be one of two things, a hit parade or a display of stifling pitching.
