HENDERSONVILLE — Full Count Rhythm stayed unblemished on the young season Tuesday night with a 9-8 walk-off victory. Batts doubled to right center scoring three runs for the win, trailing 8-6 with Matthew Batts up to the plate.
Both teams tallied eight hits on the evening as Ben Brooks led the way at the plate finishing 2-2 with one RBI and one run scored.

Kyle Magrans earned the win for the Rhythm on the mound, throwing one and one third inning and giving up two runs.
Full Count fell behind early, 4-1, after the third inning thanks to a bevy of errors but continued to battle back until it paid off in the ninth inning.
With the Rhythm trailing 8-4 in the ninth inning, things all but looked as if Full Count would drop their first game of the season.
Full Count opened the bottom of the ninth with four walks out of five batters to load the bases with one out for Zach Boze.
Facing a 3-2 count, Boze watch ball four sail wide, giving him the free base and the Rhythm one run.
Up to bat, Ben Brooks took a pitch to the body for a free base and another run, cutting the Rhythm deficit to 8-6.
With Christian Smith, Boze and Brooks on base, Matthew Batts drilled a first pitch strike to right field, clearing the bases with a standup double and sending the crowd into bliss.
