The Bryan County and Richmond Hill baseball teams recently rebounded from tough losses with convincing wins.
The Redskins, who at 15-2 overall have already equaled last season’s win total, beat Towns County 10-0 Saturday after losing 5-3 against Toombs County Friday. Bryan County had beaten Toombs 12-1 earlier in the week to open Region 2-AA play.
Toombs was one of three teams in Region 2-AA to make the Final Four last season. Against Tattnall, the Redskins were trailing 6-3 before winning in the seventh inning. Brian Meyer and Dahlson Brown both had three RBIs.
On Friday, freshman Tucker Dyson went five and two-thirds innings, striking out 10 and giving up three hits. Redskin relievers gave up three walks and a home run, however, in the top of the seventh. Cam Smith threw a no-hitter Saturday with eight strikeouts.
Bryan County is at Metter Tuesday, then hosts Metter Friday for a pair of region games.
After dropping a pair of one-run games to South Effingham, Richmond Hill swept three games from Statesboro last week, giving up just two runs in the process.
Rick Mitchell is leading the Wildcats, now 10-2, with a .571 batting average. He and Jackson Finley have each scored 13 runs, while Finley is 3-0 on the mound with a 0.00 earned run average.
Richmond Hill is at Ware County Thursday, then opens Region 2-AAAAAA play Monday against Brunswick.
