FOUR OAKS -- South Johnson scored the game-winning run with no outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, and turned back Southern Wayne, 5-4, in the quarterfinals of the Eastern Carolina 3-A Conference tournament Wednesday evening.

The third-seeded Trojans (16-7 overall) started the seventh with a single. The next batter bunt and the throw sailed into the right-field corner, which allowed the runner to score from first base.

Cody Wendorf fanned 10 South Johnston batters and gave up five runs (four earned) in six innings of work. Wendorf contributed three hits and two RBI at the plate.

Nathan Barwick added one hit.

Southern Wayne concluded the year 12-11 overall.
