Posted: Updated:

   MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Trinity Presbyterian High School captured its second straight Class 3A State Baseball Championship Friday at Riverwalk Stadium with an 8-0 win over Mars Hill Bible as winning pitcher Alan Wood tossed a two-hit shutout to get the final win.
    Wood (9-1), who struck out four and walked none for Coach Ken Whittle's Wildcats (33-8),   faced only 25 batters – four over the minimum.  He yielded a game-opening double to J.T. Hudson but didn't allow another hit until Hudson singled to start the sixth.
    Thomas Burrows (12-1) started for Mars Hill Bible (32-19) and went 5 2/3 innings to get the loss. Burrows, who pitched the Panthers' final game in their Class 2A state championship series in 2012, compiled a 21-2 record over the last two seasons.  He allowed seven hits and seven runs while striking out four Friday. Trinity scored seven of its eight runs against Coach Jay Mitchell's Panthers in the last three innings.
   Freshman shortstop Robert Adams earned MVP honors slugging a triple and single to score one run and drive in another for Trinity Friday. He also tripled on Thursday and finished with four RBIs and three runs scored in the two-game sweep.
   Trace Johnston had two hits and two RBIs for the Wildcats and Brock Stevens had a triple and three RBIs.
