Hogansville rallied from a three-run deficit to go up by a run in the top of the sixth inning, but South Augusta scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth to win it 8-7.
The game was scheduled to go seven innings, but there was also a two-hour time limit, and time ran out after the sixth inning.
Hogansville later won by forfeit over Cartersville, giving it a 1-1 record through Day 1.
Hogansville will play again at 6 p.m. today in the double-elimination tournament.
“We definitely feel confident in this team,” Hogansville assistant coach Ron Wilson said. “We’ve got a lot of talent here from Hogansville and LaGrange. Hopefully they’ll be able to turn it around today.”
Hogansville was down 6-3 heading into the top of the sixth when it charged back.
Michael Bonner singled, Austin Wilson had a sacrifice bunt, and Reese Payne had an RBI double.
After James Murphy reached on an error, Colby Bridwell had an RBI double, Brandon Truitt knocked in a run with a single, and Hunter Rollins capped the rally with a run-scoring single.
