TYLER -- Before Hallsville's nine senior baseball players were to walk across the stage at their high school graduation Friday night, they all were faced with what could've been a tough reality: the end of their prep athletic career as well.

Walker's two-out, two-strike, bases-loaded drive off the left field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning sent Hallsville to a dramatic 3-2 win over Frisco Wakeland in Game 2 of their Class 5A Region II semifinal playoff series Friday afternoon at Mike Carter Field.
