After almost a week off, Bradwell’s baseball team is ready to hit the diamond.
The Tigers host Wayne County Monday and Beach Tuesday. Both games start at 5 p.m.
The Tigers last played on Tuesday, defeating Windsor Forest 11-1 in Savannah.
Savannah High forfeited Friday’s game.
The wins improve the Tigers’ record to 7-15 and 6-5 in Region 3-AAAAA.
In Tuesday’s win, Nick Franks pitched the complete game — six innings -— to earn his first win of the season.
The senior struck out 12 batters and allowed two hits. He also doubled at the plate.
BI coach Rhett Heeellgren said Franks and Steven Dill will each pitch between 30-40 pitches against Wayne County.
The Yellow Jackets are 12-5 and defeated Bradwell 10-4 on March 2 in Jesup.
In Tuesday's region contest, Kentrell Hargrove is expected to start on the hill for the Tigers. Freshman Dylan Brown may pitch some too.
The Tigers and their fans will be watching the scoreboard Tuesday. Johnson hosts Groves at 4:30 p.m. in a game that could determine Bradwell's postseason plans.
If Johnson beats Groves, then Bradwell must beat both Jenkins and Groves to advance to the state playoffs. If Groves beats Johnson, then a Bradwell win over either Jenkins or Groves advances the Tigers.
Bradwell travels to Jenkins on Friday and travels to Groves on May 1.
