The Tigers made the trip to Savannah Tuesday, only to have Mother Nature postpone the game for a day. And when the Tigers returned Wednesday afternoon, Jenkins proved to be a too much for Bradwell.
The Warriors shut BI out in seven innings, 0-7, handing the Tigers their second regional loss.
Still the Tigers sit at 3-2 in 3-AAAAA and can grab third place with a win tonight at Groves High.
“Errors killed us once again, Tiger coach Rhett Hellgren said. “Other than that, Kentrell (Hargrove) pitched a great game and kept them off balance. He pitched all 7.”
Hargrove struck out 3 batters and gave up 4 walks, but Hellgren said the Tigers’ 7 errors allowed the Warriors to bring in the runs.
“We are still in good shape as far as the playoffs go,” the coach said. “Friday’s game is a big one. It’s a must-win situation for us there because if you look at the playoff picture you would rather go in at third place instead of fourth. That way we would play the number 2 team. It gives us an extra opportunity.”
As of Thursday morning Jenkins was in first place in the region with a 5-0 region record according to Camden sits in second with a 5-1 record, Groves in third, followed by Bradwell in fourth.
Pending Mother Nature the Tigers are set to swing the bats tonight in Savannah starting at 4.
