A busy week in Glynn County high school sports included the Glynn Academy baseball team taking two of three games against Richmond Hill in its Region 2-AAAAAA series.
The Red Terrors won the rubber game of the series Friday night by a 4-3 score at Wainwright Field in Brunswick.
Glynn also won the opening game of series at home on Monday by a 2-0 score. The Wildcats took the middle game by a 4-1 tally on Wednesday.
The Terrors are now 21-5 overall and they finish region play with an 8-4 record. The result of next week’s Brunswick-Effingham series will determine Glynn’s seeding for the upcoming state playoffs.
On Friday against the Wildcats, the Terrors fell behind 2-0 but rallied with four runs in the third to take the lead for good. Hunter Hall drove in Glynn’s first run with a double, Griffin Bates followed with an RBI-single to tie the score and the Terrors took the lead on a run-scoring single by Hill Hartman.
Glynn added its fourth run in the frame on a sacrifice fly by Kolby Avedisian.
Richmond Hill pulled within a run in the fifth and loaded the bases with two outs in the sixth before Glynn got the final out on a play at the plate to keep the lead.
Bo Pierce recorded the last out in the sixth as he pitched in relief for Glynn. He struck out the side in the seventh to finish out the game.
Pierce was also the winning pitcher for the Terrors in the first game of the series as he threw a complete-game shutout.
The Wildcats won the second game by scoring all of their runs in the third inning. They got a three-run home run by Jackson Finley off Glynn ace Will Bowdoin.
Bowdoin gave up the four runs on six hits while striking out nine in six innings of work.
He also led the GA offense with two hits.
Glynn didn’t score until the seventh when Hartman belted a triple to score Griffin Bates who had reached on a single.
