Leadoff hitter Joseph Calhoun also had a big day with four hits and an RBI, and Evan Smith had three hits with an RBI.
Luke Swann had two hits and an RBI, Daniel Swann, Riley Hess and John Whitlow each had one hit and an RBI, and Braden Haynes drove in two runs.
Calhoun got the start for the Warriors, and he pitched 3 1/3 innings, and he gave up three runs on three hits while striking out seven.
Daniel Swann pitched the final 2 2/3 innings, giving up no runs.
Flint River took the lead with a pair of runs in the first inning, but LaGrange Academy exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the third to seize the lead.
The Warriors kept pouring it on, and when they scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth, the game ended because of the run rule.
LaGrange Academy is set to host Lafayette Christian on Monday at 5 p.m.
