Rhadans excels again as Chargers split with Statesmen

Georgia Highlands College baseball split a doubleheader Saturday with Lincoln Trail CC (IL). The Chargers won the first game 5-1, but dropped the second game to the Statesmen 8-3. Georgia Highlands posted five runs in the opener on just four hits in the game. The Chargers built their lead with a run in the bottom of the first inning and two more in both the fourth and fifth frames.

Lincoln Trail’s only run came in the top of the sixth inning to avoid the shutout.

Chargers’ freshman pitcher Dalton Rhadans (7 IP, 1R, 0ER, 1BB, 7K) tossed a complete game, three-hitter and did not allow an earned run to earn the win. Rhadans now has a pair of complete game wins in three starts and is sporting a 1.73 ERA through 17 and 2/3 innings with 18 strikeouts. Four different Chargers had one hit each. Travis Sands (double, RBI), Skylar McPhee (double), Parker Orr (2 RBI), and Keith Lyle (2 RBI) provided the safeties.

In Game 2, Lincoln Trail took a 4-0 lead in the top of the first and built an 8-0 lead before the Chargers got on the board with three runs in the final two innings.

The Statesmen out hit Georgia Highlands 11 to 7 in the contest. The Chargers committed a pair of fielding errors.

Bryson Horne (2 RBI) and Alex Marquand had two hits each for the Chargers. McPhee (RBI), Willis Kemp, and Lyle added the other GHC hits. Georgia Highlands (9-4) plays a doubleheader against Emmanuel College JV Tuesday afternoon.
