Walters State’s Ramon Osuna is congratulated by coach David Shelton on Thursday after hitting a home run in the fourth inning of the Senators’ 14-6 victory over Chattahoochee Valley at the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series at Suplizio Field. Osuna was 3 for 4 in the win with five RBI.

Senators coach David Shelton said before the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series started, “Our pitching staff a lot of times this year has thrown us on their backs and carried us.”
The batters, it appears, are returning the favor.
