Despite losing the last three games of the regular season, the Bryan County baseball team’s record of 17-9 is the best in two decades.
The Redskins lost to Bacon County 4-1 on Thursday and 12-2 on Friday before falling 7-2 Saturday to Jeff Davis. Nathan Leggett and A.J. Wiley had two hits each against Bacon County Friday and Leggett had a solo home run against Jeff Davis.
“I told the guys that the two teams we lost two are ranked in the top 10 and are very good,” Bryan County Coach Jason Roundtree said. “Baseball is a game of streaks.”
Before the losses, the Redskins had won five in a row, scoring 60 runs over that stretch.
“It’s time to refocus and get back to the fundamentals,” Roundtree said. “Our region is one of the best in the state.”
Bryan County opens Class AA tournament play with a doubleheader at Metter at 4:30 p.m. Friday. The “if necessary” game would be at 2 p.m. Saturday.
