FLOWERY BRANCH — Drew Miles made sure a couple of bad hops didn’t come between Flowery Branch and its postseason ambitions. With his team tied against Apalachee in the bottom of the seventh, after squandering a two-run lead earlier in the inning, Miles ripped a hard-hit walk-off single that brushed off the glove of Wildcats shortstop Steven Adair to score Jonathon Hughes from third and lift the Falcons to a 4-3 win in a crucial Region 8-AAAAA contest between two teams battling for a state playoff spot. It was a perfect way to bounce back from a less-than-spectacular top half of the seventh, which saw Flowery Branch (12-7, 7-3) lose a 2-0 advantage after allowing three runs on two hits and three errors following what was an all-around clean game for Flowery Branch.
