The fourth chance certainly wasn't a charm for the Munroe baseball team Tuesday night.
They had defeated Region 1-2A foe Aucilla the three previous times the two teams hooked up this year.
It wasn't going to happen a fourth time, mainly due to the pitching performance of sophomore righthander Shawn Blue.
Blue threw a two-hitter at the Bobcats as his team advanced in the regionals with a 4-1 victory.
"There's not a lot you can do when a young pitcher throws a two-hitter at your team," Munroe first year coach Jayme Williams said.
"I give Shawn all the credit he deserves."
Blue gave up his only run to the Bobcats in the third inning when Stephen Miller, who had reached base on a fielder's choice, scored on a Myles Edwards’ fly ball that was dropped.
The way Munroe starting pitcher Nolan Haire was throwing it looked like that run could hold up.
Haire had shut out Cedar Creek Christian in a first round regional game Thursday night and stretched that scoreless inning streak to 11 when he blanked Aucilla trough the first four innings Tuesday night.
That streak ended in the Warrior fifth.
Blue led off the frame with a single, which was followed by an Austin Bishop single. After a sacrifice bunt moved Blue and Bishop up, Brandon Helm was hit by a pitch to load the bases. D.J. Wilkinson then singled in Blue and Bishop giving the Warriors the game lead.
Before the inning was over Helm and Wilkinson scored and Blue had what was to be plenty of cushion.
"I felt we were due," Aucilla coach Thornton Davis said. "There's no doubt we beat a good team." Davis, who is also in his first year, continued, "But we're not bad ourselves, especially when you get a performance like Blue gave us."
The Warriors move on with a 17-11 record while Munroe ends their year at 21-6.
"It feels bad right now," Williams said, "but I'll tell anyone I'm proud of this team. I really love the kids and appreciate the parents and am looking forward to our summer program and to next year."
