Back-to-back games can wear down players and the Bradwell Tigers can attest to the physical toll the last series of games has taken on their squad.
Last Wednesday they lost
a non-region battle to Brunswick 5-17 as they saved their starters for region games. The next
day they battled top seeded Jenkins and, despite being tied at 5 at one point, they fell 12-7. On Friday they hosted another region foe, falling to Johnson 10-14.
The back-to-back losses temporarily dropped them from third place in Region 3-AAAAA. But on Monday the Tigers licked their wounds and clawed the Beach High Bulldogs, 20-0, in three innings.
Jacob Dill pitched the no-hitter.
The victory and point spread allowed the Tigers, who are now 6-4 in the region and 8-14 overall, to hold onto a third place, behind Jenkins and Camden, according to Georgia Prep.
But for coach Rhett Hellgren and his squad there is no time to savor the victory. They were scheduled to play their second game against Jenkins yesterday and travel to Johnson for game 2 against the Atomsmashers on Thursday, starting at 4:30 p.m.
The Tigers then host a non-region game against Calvary Day on Friday at 6 p.m.
