Cold bats and fielding miscues continue to undermine solid pitching performances as the Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School baseball team enters the stretch run of the season.

The Tiger Sharks played a doubleheader March 28, hosting Graceville in game on and facing Wakulla High School in the second.

Port St. Joe blasted Graceville 12-1.

Bryce Godwin was the winning pitcher and Ricky Pennington and Tyler Worley each doubled and drove in a run to pace the Tiger Shark attack.

Wakulla handed Port St. Joe a 2-0 defeat.

The Tiger Sharks managed just two hits but Coach Chuck Gannon said eighth-grader Ethan Sander provided “a very good effort.” Sander allowed four hits and struck out six.

The following day, Port St. Joe traveled to Franklin County and won the District 2-1A contest 8-3.
