During the break, the Tiger Sharks entertained teams from Mississippi.

Last Tuesday, Port St. Joe fell 3-0 to Ingomar, MS.

Austin Clayton was the losing pitcher but the Tiger Sharks faced Ingomar’s No. 1 pitcher and could not put together hits.

“Austin pitched well enough to keep us in the ball game,” Gannon said, noting the score was 1-0 in the late innings. “We could not get enough timely hits to produce runs.”

On Thursday, the Tiger Sharks got back in the groove during a doubleheader with Myrtle, MS.

The Tiger Sharks won both ends of the twin bill by 11-3 scores behind the starting pitching of Chase Wilder, the winner in the first game, and Cole Cryderman who won the second.

“Those victories helped pick our spirits up,” Gannon said. “We had lost a little confidence, I think. We did start to hit the ball a little bit better and our defense is picking up. We played good defense again Ingomar.
