Leesburg -- The season comes to an end for the Lee County baseball team on Memorial Day, as the Trojans are swept at home by Heritage 9-4 and 6-5 in the state semifinals.
The Patriots scored 7 runs in the 6th inning of the series opener to blow open a close game.
A two-run home run by Anthony Bazzani in the 6th inning proved to be the difference in the second game, as Heritage comes from behind for the one-run win.
It was the first home run of the season for Bazzani.
Lee County head coach Rob Williams says the series was a tough ending to a great season.
"We really wanted to come out of this thing winning this series, but like I told them, there's only going to be one team that walks away from this thing happy," says Williams. "I'm so proud of where we started to where we got to. They really came together as a team, and I couldn't be prouder of a group."
Lee County finished the season with a record of 22-10.
