Bradwell Institute hosted the Wildcats in a doubleheader Tuesday and took them on again on Wednesday in Richmond Hill for Region 3-AAAAA games.

The Wildcats swept the series, wining 15-2, 18-1 and 13-0.

In the first game Tuesday, Richmond Hill posted seven runs in the second inning and held the lead throughout the game. The Wildcats drove in three more runs in the fourth and one in the fifth.

The Tigers responded in the fifth inning, loading the bases and scoring two runs off a single by Hunter Hawkins. The Wildcats answered in the sixth, adding four runs and shutting down the Tigers’ bats.

Seven fielding errors by the Tigers gave the Wildcats six unearned runs.

Tiger Steven Harris pitched four innings, walking four and striking out one. Jordan Lambright came in as relief for two innings with two strikeouts.

In game two, the Tigers trailed 6-1 by the third inning. The Wildcats got 12 hits en route to their 18 runs.

The Tigers mustered six hits. Hawkins was the lone Tiger to cross home off an RBI by Wes Brooks.

Wednesday, the Wildcats pitched a no-hitter while connecting bat to ball for 12 hits and 13 runs. The game was done by the fifth inning.

Tiger coach Jeff Polk said the Tigers need to cut down errors.

"We need to get better defensively and make the plays that we need to," he said. "On the offensive side, we need to work on situational hitting and putting the ball in play when we have runners on base."

The Tigers are 4-13 overall and 0-8 in Region 3-AAAAA. The boys will play at Effingham County at 6 p.m. Monday.
