BHS Tigers bow out of 2A regional play with 7-1 loss

The BHS Tigers bowed out of Class 2A regional play with a semi-final loss to Athens last Wednesday here at Ed Lewis Field. The hometown lads closed out the 2018 campaign with a 13-14 record.

Alex Wiltfong, the first of five Tigers to take the bump, lasted only two- thirds of an inning when he received a concussion by being hit by a throw from the outfield to the plate square on the right forehead. Lucus Unland (2.2), Garrett Brannan (1.2), and Drake Wrobleski (1.0) all saw action for the O&B.

Justin Tanner picked up the win for the Trojans going the distance, allowing six hits, one run, struck out two and did not walk a batter.

Clint Cooper led the Tigers’ six-hit attack, going 2-for-3 while Bill Cramblitt had the lone Tiger RBI. Leading the Athens’ eight-hit attack was Braydon Smith who went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run, and three ribbies. &nbsp;&nbsp;<ahref=""><spanstyl... 13px; color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">To view more, please log in or subscribe to the digital edition.</span></a></p>
