The Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School baseball team split a doubleheader against visiting out-of-state teams last week.
The Tiger Sharks followed that up with a pair of district wins to begin the week with a visit to South Walton – listed as a home game on the schedule – on Friday night.
The Tiger Sharks beat East Memorial Christian Academy (AL) 13-8 but lost a tough 3-1 decision to Covington (TN) High School.
Bryce Register, Cole Cryderman and Hunter Baumgardner paced the win over EMAC.
Ethan Sander started on the mound and earned the win after Cryderman came on to snuff out a EMAC rally in the top of the seventh inning.
Bryce Godwin, who Coach Chuck Gannon said provided a “gritty effort”, took the loss against Covington.
“We just left too many runners on base and could not come up with the big hit,” Gannon said, adding that Register again “had a good effort at the plate.”
Cryderman tossed a complete game and had two hits with an RBI in a 6-4 win over Liberty County Monday night.
Bryce Godwin also had two hits and drove in a run.
On Tuesday, the Tiger Sharks beat Franklin County 6-3.
Coy Burke picked up the win with Will Ramsey earning the save.
Godwin was 3 for 4 with an RBI. Jarkeice Davis and Coy Burke had two hits apiece and drove in runs.
Tony Yowell had an RBI single.
After Friday’s game at South Walton, Port St. Joe travels to West Gadsden Tuesday before returning home for games against Bay High next Thursday and Bozeman on Friday in the final district matchup of the season.
