The Bryan County baseball team is riding a four-game winning streak and has given up just four runs over that stretch while scoring 55.
The Redskins beat McIntosh Academy 16-4 last Friday, then topped Savannah Country Day 9-0 Monday behind Blake Joyce’s three RBI on two hits. Dahlson Brown picked up the win on the mound.
Tuesday saw Bryan County take a doubleheader from Groves by matching 15-0 scores.
In the first game, A.J. Wiley was 3-for-3 at the plate and scored three times, while Joyce had three RBI and a home run. Dyllon Wiley and Dawson Brown each had two hits. The Redskins were 15-for-15 on stolen base attempts.
Game two saw nine Redskins steal a base with no putouts.
Bryan County is now 16-6 overall and 7-2 in Region 2-AA.
“That’s our best record in over a decade,” Coach Jason Roundtree said. “We have had several alumni at games and the administration has greatly supported us.”
Roundtree said he thinks the team’s success is due not only to talent level but also comradery.
“I sometimes sit back and listen to their stories and hear them laugh and it makes me feel really blessed knowing that they are not only enjoying baseball but also being around each other,” he said.
The Redskins host Jeff Davis at 5 p.m. Friday before closing out the regular season next week against Vidalia and Bacon County.
