The ping of the bat was heard all afternoon as the Tigers made hit after hit against Windsor Forest on Tuesday.
The end came in the fourth inning as Nick Franks ran in the 15th run to shutout Windsor Forest 15-0. For Bradwell it was their first win of the season, for the players it was a confidence booster.
“I’m really happy we finally got a win,” head coach Rhett Hellgren said. “I hope they can carry this feeling into the next couple of games.”
It is a win the team desperately needed to overcome a bad start to a season that still faces tough opponents in Appling County, Jenkins, Groves and Camden County.
The batting average improved dramatically Tuesday as Tiger after Tiger made connection with the ball and brought in the hits and the runs.  
DeAnte Day hit a triple in the bottom of the third inning, and had two stolen bases for the game, while Josh Magaw pitched a no-hitter. Steven Dill hit a double, and the dugout was active and enthusiastic about the win.
Although it was an impressive win, coach Hellgren reminded the team that there is still more work to do and tougher teams ahead to beat.
“Feel good about the win but don’t settle for just this one,” he told the team. “We can do better and we need to keep improving to keep winning.”
