Chargers split Sunday DH with Walters State

February 18, 2024

The Georgia Highlands Chargers split a home doubleheader with Walters State (Tenn.) CC Sunday afternoon.

GHC won the first game 7-0 and the Senators took Game 2, 4-1.

Chargers’ starting pitcher, Trip Dovale, tossed a gem in Game 1. He went the full seven innings allowing just two hits and a pair of walks while shutting out Walters State. The sophomore right-hander, who prepped at Roswell High School, fanned ten while improving his season mark to 3-0.

Luke Orfi (two doubles), Ryan Wideman (two doubles, three RBIs), and Grayson Godbee (RBI) had two hits each for the Chargers. Clay Wiesen (RBI), Barrett Eldridge (RBI), and Will Cawthon (sac fly, RBI) added one hit apiece.

In the second game, a pair of Walters State pitchers — Manning West and Tyler Welch — limited the Chargers to just three hits.

Wideman, Eldridge (double), and Trevor Lovett (RBI) had the only GHC safeties.

Starter Michael Sharman (3.1 IP, 3ER, 4H, 1BB, 4K) was touched for a pair of early home runs and was tagged with the loss. 

Georgia Highlands (12-2) hosts Chattahoochee Valley CC (noon) and Wabash Valley College (6 p.m.) on Friday and will play the same two opponents on Saturday starting at 3 p.m.
