Gators Sweep Brunswick for 7th Victory in a Row

Gators Sweep Brunswick for 7th Victory in a Row

Friday was a great day for Cody Grant, as Grant threw a shutout to carry Ware County to an 8-0 victory over Brunswick at Blackshear in seven innings. Ware's Grant kept Brunswick off the scoreboard for all seven innings he was on the mound. He pitched a shutout, allowing no runs on two hits while striking out seven.

Ware beat Brunswick thanks to 10 hits, including five extra base hits. The Gators scored three runs in the sixth on an RBI single by Kobe Manders, an RBI single by Grant, and an RBI double by Austin Lairsey.

Jet Thomas racked up three RBIs on two hits for the Gators. He homered in the first inning and doubled in the third inning.

A Stanton was charged with the loss. He allowed seven runs in 3 2/3 innings, walked four and struck out four.

Ware never surrendered the lead after the first inning, scoring one run on a solo home run by Thomas.

After posting one run in the third, the Gators again scored one in the seventh. In the third, Ware scored when Austin Lairsey drew a bases loaded walk, bringing home Manders.

Ware added two more runs in the top of the fourth. The inning got off to a hot start when Manders doubled, plating Coleman Tanner.

 NOTE: The Gators will host the Camden County Wildcats this afternoon at the high school. This is the first game of a three game series that has big playoff implications. Come out and support the Gators today and Friday.
