FPCA middle school team in championship

First Presbyterian Christian Academy middle school baseball team ousted the No. 1 seed, Savannah Christian, in the first two games of a three-game series of the GISA Tournament in Savannah.

FPCA defeated won 10-5 on Monday and 8-6 on Tuesday. James Osteen pitched the entire first game, throwing 109 pitches and racking up 10 strikeouts. Cameron Eason started Tuesday, and Josh Nunn came in during the third inning and held off Savannah Christian to preserve FPCA’s 8-6 victory.

"Our bull pen has come through with solid pitching in the series and our eighth-graders continue to provide the leadership," coach Jay Osteen said. "Josh Nunn threw exceptionally well in game 2 as the Raiders could not catch up to his fast ball."

Coach Chris Eason praised the team’s offense.

"Our team continues to hit the ball well and that has made the difference in this series," he said. "I am impressed more and more every game."

FPCA will face Savannah Country Day in the championship series, which starts at 5:30 p.m. Monday at L. Scott Stell Park in Savannah.
