First Presbyterian Christian Academy’s baseball team lost one and won one recently.
On Friday, the Highlanders dropped a 10-9 decision to No. 5 Trinity Christian in Savannah. On Monday, the Highlanders had their second home game of the season and beat Bethesda, 15-0, in two innings. It was the second time the Highlanders shutout the Blazers this season.
In Friday’s matchup, Phillip Swindell started on the mound and pitched four innings, not allowing any earned runs.
But FPCA baseball coach Andy Yanzetich said the Highlanders committed five errors that led to five runs. FPCA had an 8-2 lead in the fourth, but the errors proved to be costly, as the relief pitchers couldn’t hold back Trinity’s batters.
FPCA’s DeShaun Collins batted 2 of 4 with two RBIs. Jake Lee was 2 of 4 with a triple and one RBI.
On Monday, Highlander pitcher Vincent Brunelli got the win, throwing two innings and striking out three.
Collins was 2 of 2 with a double, two bases on balls and a triple with three RBIs. Lee was 3 of 3 with a triple and three RBIs. Richard Lovelady was 1 of 2 with a triple and three RBIs.
The Highlanders, 3-1 for the season, will play St. Andrews at 5 p.m. Thursday in Savannah.
