Chargers skid to fifth straight conference loss

The Georgia Highlands baseball team lost its fifth straight conference game Tuesday to visiting Andrew College 9-7 at LakePoint in Emerson.

The Chargers have now dropped six of their last seven Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association games and have slipped to fourth in the conference standings and one game under .500 in the league.

GHC won three games last week, but all were out of conference.

Tuesday, Andrew used a trio of three-run innings to outlast Georgia Highlands as the two teams combined for 25 hits.

The visiting Tigers led 3-1 through three innings, 6-2 through five innings, and took a 9-2 advantage in the top of the sixth.

The Chargers scored five runs over the final four innings, but could not quite make up the margin.

All nine position starters had at least one hit for Andrew, led by a two-hit, three RBI day by Brent Todys. Jordan Holt (RBI), Will Barry, and Matthew Holloway (RBI) also had two hits each for the Tigers.

Parker Orr homered, doubled, and finished with three hits and two RBI to pace the Chargers offense. Skylar McPhee (RBI), Jaree Pledger (RBI), and NIck Piccapietra added two hits each. Austin Foster (2 RBI), Bryson Horne (RBI), and Willis Kemp had the other GHC hits.

Hunter Norman (4 IP, 2ER, 6H, 1BB, 3K) started for Andrew and picked up the pitching victory. The Tigers used three other pitchers in relief with Brady Jones closing out the ninth behind middle innings relief from Omari Hunter and Daniel Lee.

Alex Holdbrooks (4 IP, 6R, 5ER, 9H, 3BB, 2K) started for the Chargers and suffered the loss. Travis Kuebler (5 IP, 3R, 0ER, 4H, 0BB, 4K) worked the final five frames.

Andrew improved to 17-28 overall and 4-16 with their win Tuesday.

Georgia Highlands (27-16, 10-11) will travel to Cuthbert to conclude the four-game conference series with the Tigers with a single game Friday night and a doubleheader Saturday.
