The Troy All-Stars saw their World Series end in a long double-session as they dropped a 4-3 decision to the Fairhope All-Stars in the elimination round of the 13-year old Dixie Boys Alabama State Tournament in Enterprise Monday night.

Troy had dropped into the losers bracket after falling to Opelika Monday morning. Troy was forced to return to Enterprise just a few hours after knocking off Enterprise in the opening round, 3-2. The tournament was postponed Saturday night and didn't start until 7 p.m. Sunday due to heavy rains in the Enterprise area.

Jerrell Lawson belted a pair of home runs for Troy in a losing cause.

In the top of the sixth, Enterprise finally broke through when Sam Gilmer scored on an RBI ground out by Brett Blackburn to tie the game at 1-1. Just a few moments later, Enterprise courtesy runner Ryan Littel scored when Troy's catcher tried to pick a runner off second base before the throw entered center field.

Enterprise's 2-1 lead didn't last for long though as Troy responded scoring two runs in the bottom of the sixth. With one out, Jerrell Lawson lined a double to right field before Pitts reached on a fielder's choice. After both runners moved up 90 feet on stolen bases, Morgan Sullivant lined a two-run single to left field for what proved to be the difference in the game.
