Saturday’s nasty weather didn’t stop the Tiger baseball team from facing the Indians in Charlton County and they got tomahawked, 11-6.

"In baseball, you need to have concentration and intensity," Tiger baseball coach Rhett Hellgren said. "Today, we had neither. It is going to be a long year if the players that are more than capable of playing at high level do not come out ready to play."

Hellgren said his players were not thinking baseball or they would not have given up unearned runs.

"DeAnte (Day) pitched until the sixth inning, taking the loss," the coach said. "He gave up 9 of the 11 runs and only 4 were earned. Ulrick John finished the 6th inning and gave up a two run home run for two earned runs."

The coach said Day did redeem himself at the plate.

"DeAnte had a grand slam that put us in the lead in the 4th inning to go up 6-4," he said.

But the Tiger coach said his runners were getting picked off.

The Tiger are currently 0-3 in the regular season.

Monday’s game aginst Brantley County was canceled. But the Tigers took the field at home on Tuesday to host the Glynn Academy Terrors.

The Tigers had a 1-0 lead going into the second inning but the Terrors got a runner on base and the next batter hit a home run to go ahead 2-1.

The Tigers tied the game in the fourth, but costly errors in the end cost them to lose 8-2.

The Tigers host Richmond Hill tomorrow at 2 p.m.

The Courier will bring you the result as it becomes available.
