Wilson's walk off lifts Tupelo past South Panola

Feb. 20—TUPELO — With the game-winning run 90 feet away in the bottom of the 10th inning, Brody Wilson was just happy to have an at-bat with a chance to win it.

On the third pitch, he did just that with a bloop single to right field, and the Tupelo Golden Wave beat the South Panola Tigers 5-4 on Tuesday night.
