Tenth-inning walk-off home run halts Chargers

Georgia Highlands lost Tuesday afternoon at East Georgia State on a walk-off solo home run in the tenth inning, 2-1.

The loss spoiled a nice pitching performance by a trio of Chargers.

Declan Dun (5 IP, 1R, 0ER, 1H, 2BB) made the start. Davis Mortland (1 IP, 0R, 1H, 1BB, 3K) worked a scoreless sixth inning and Skyler Thellman (3.1 IP, 1ER, 3H, 0BB, 7K) struck out seven of the thirteen batters he faced down the stretch but suffered the loss.

Georgia Highlands scored in the top of the first inning on Ryan Wideman’s RBI single.

East Georgia tied the score in the third inning on an infield error, a single, and a sacrifice bunt.

Zayd Brannigan finished with two hits for Georgia Highlands. Connor Faulkner, Mitchell Walker, Nic Ferrer, and Hudson Sapp added one hit apiece.

The Chargers (22-11, 2-3 GCAA) host the Bobcats (17-14, 3-2) Friday and Saturday for the final three games of their week-long conference series.
