Last Thursday the Bradwell Tigers wrapped up a week of spring break baseball games with a definitive 11-3 win in Savannah against the Windsor Forest Knights.
The win places the Tigers at 4-3 in region 3-AAAAA. They hold on to the third- place spot behind Camden County and Jenkins.
According to Tiger coach Rhett Hellgren, it was a 4-2 ballgame going into the top of the seventh inning. Tiger Eric Wells did his best on the mound, holding off the knights through five innings, Eran Hodge then came in for the save and the Knights could only score one more run.
In the bottom of the seventh the Hinesville boys clocked seven more runs in what Hellgren said was a total team effort.
"I’m really happy to get a win," the coach said. "I must say that our record is deceiving, we are definitely better than our record indicates. We have played some really good ball clubs and have not been blessed by the baseball gods."
The Tigers’ rematch against Jenkins was Tuesday afternoon. The score was not available as of press time. But the Hinesville boys still have three more region games against Groves, Johnson and Beach and two non-region games, facing Wayne County and Brunswick to get ready for the playoffs.
"We need to be focused and get ready for the end of the season," the coach said.
