On Thursday, Georgia Premier Academy's Daniel Espino struck out 17 batters in a complete game one-hitter. The 3-0 win made his team 3-0 in the tournament. On Friday, he added the 2019 Southeastern Baseball Classic MVP plaque to his trophy case (most likely trophy room at this point).

Joining them were Dustin Noller & Zach French of Northwestern, Austin Windham & Jet Smith of Robert E. Lee Academy, Bryce Gorospe & Michael Ritch of Queen's Grant and A'Shani McFarland, JD Pendergrass & Owen Taylor of Hartsville.
