Smokies pitcher Ezra Johnson gets ready to fire a pitch during Tuesday’s win over the Braves. Johnson had seven strikeouts on the night. – JACOB LINDSEY | THE STANDARD BANNER

Capping off a perfect 12-0 regular season, the Dandridge Smokies trounced the Jefferson City Braves, 10-1, on Tuesday night at the Field of Dreams in Dandridge.

Stakes were high for the Smokies as they looked to finish off their regular season undefeated. Despite allowing an early run to the Braves, the Smokies defense came alive with eleven back-to-back outs over the course of four innings, helped by seven strikeouts from Ezra Johnson. On offense, Keegan Hansel, Isaiah Kirk, and Johnson combined for six RBIs thanks to key hits with runners on base.
