Chargers stay unbeaten, complete series sweep of USC-Salkehatchie

Georgia Highlands improved to 14-0 on the season Saturday by completing a three-game sweep of USC Salkehatchie with a doubleheader win 15-3 and 12-2 played at Pickens High School.

The Chargers pounded out 21 hits in Saturday’s twin bill with both games shortened to five innings by mercy rule.

Ethan Anderson, Max Kops, and Caden Smith all homered for the Chargers in the 15-3 victory while pitcher Conner Perry tossed a five inning complete game. The three combined for six total hits and eight RBIs. Ben Olson added a three-hit game with a pair of RBIs for the GHC offense.

Perry limited the Indians to just three hits and struck out ten. Only one of the runs were earned with a homer and he did not walk anyone.

In the series finale’, Chargers’ pitchers Erice Moore and Cason Rich combined for a one-hitter. Moore fanned seven in four innings of work.

Meanwhile, the offene flourished with eight different Chargers producing at least one hit.

Kops homered twice and drove in three runs. Zayd Brannigan and David Smith also hit home runs. Conner Todaro finished with two hits and two RBIs. Mitchell Walker (2 RBIs), Caden Smith (double), Olson, and Parker Poteet added one hit apiece.

Georgia Highlands (14-0) hosts Point University Monday and will play a three-game series with Wabash Valley College at LakePoint Friday and Saturday before traveling to Wallace State-Hanceville next Sunday.
