August 12, 2018 – Dawson Painter allowed one hit and one run in each of the first two innings, but Troy, Alabama Post 70 was not able to scratch any more as Randolph County Post 45 recorded a 3-2 come-from-behind victory to win the American Legion Southeast Regional for a second straight year.

Troy took their first lead with a solo home run by Gage Herring in the top of the first inning but Painter hit his own solo shot to tie the game in the bottom of the first. It was Painter's eighth home run of the year.

Troy's Joey Wozniak doubled to lead off the second inning and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Brayden Baggett and the Alabama champions led 2-1.

Dawson Painter got his second hit in the third inning and scored his second run on a Bryce Marsh double.

The score remained tied until the bottom of the sixth inning when Trevor Marsh was hit by a pitch to lead off for Post 45. After an out, a pitching change and two wild pitches, Marsh scored the final run of the game on a Spencer Lanier triple.

Painter was 3-for-3 at the plate with a double and a home run. Lanier was 2-for-3 on the afternoon and Post 45 also recorded hits by Braxton Davis, Trevor Marsh and Bryce Marsh.

Following the game, Dawson Painter was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2018 Regional Tournament.
