Gainesville senior Sims Griffith passed the biggest pitching assignment of his high school career with flying colors. Three days after the Red Elephants (8-2, 3-1 Region 8-AAAAA) lost to Flowery Branch, Griffith took the ball and threw four innings of scoreless relief to secure a 4-3 victory in the final meeting of the season against the Falcons on Monday at Ivey-Watson Field. A middle infielder on an everyday basis, Griffith, who finished with 48 pitches, entered the game down 3-1 and didn’t allow any hits while striking out four.
