The Liberty County High School baseball team will roll into today’s home game against Bradwell Institute off a road win.
The Panthers are 1-0 after taking down Portal, 11-7, Tuesday in Statesboro in non-region action.
Today’s game hosting Bradwell was originally set for 6 p.m. but was moved to 4 p.m. due to anticipated colder weather at night.
Bradwell also rescheduled Thursday’s game at Long County for 11 a.m. Saturday in Ludowici.
Against Portal, Liberty scored three runs in the first inning and seven in the second.
The Panthers’ Quinndon Montgomery batted 3-of-4, including a double, with two RBIs. Colby Rhea was 2-of-5 with two RBIs, and Parker Neely and Jacob Albertson each had one RBI.
Liberty pitcher Vincent Brunelli earned the win, allowing four runs over three innings with four strikeouts, two walks and five hits.
Parker Neeley made nine putouts.
Liberty coach Tony Glazer said the Panthers played well for their first outing, but would like his team to finish as strong as they start.
“Started out hitting the ball pretty well and playing good defense,” he said. “As the game went on, we made a few errors that allowed them to get back into the game and left numerous runners on base.”
