The Long County High School baseball team snapped a six-game losing streak Wednesday by defeating the 3-AAAAA Groves High School Rebels, 11-7, in Garden City.

"This game was the best game that we have played during the second half of the season," Blue Tide coach Brian Thomas said. "We played a complete game. We pitched, hit and defended well all game."

Picking up the win for the Tide was Luke Golden, with Jacob Turner getting the save.

Austin Middleton and Shawn Mills each went 3 for 4, and Middleton had a double to lead the Blue Tide offense.

With the loss, the Rebels’ overall record dropped to 9-9, while the Tide’s record improved to 6-14.

On Tuesday, Long County fell to Toombs County, 11-0, in a Region 2-AA matchup in Lyons.

The Blue Tide are back on the road again today to take on Appling County (12-8) in another region contest. The Pirates won, 6-5, the last time the two teams met.
