The Long County High School baseball team got back on the winning track Saturday by beating Bryan County 11-1 in Ludowici. The victory was a big one for the Blue Tide (8-11 overall and 4-5 in Region 2-AA) because it moved them a half-game back of Vidalia (10-6, 5-5) for the fourth spot in the region standings going into this week’s action.
The Blue Tide were slated to play Claxton on Monday in a non-region contest, but because of rain the game was rescheduled to 5 p.m. Thursday in Evans County.
Long County was scheduled to play McIntosh County on Tuesday in Darien.
Results for that region game were not available at press time.
