Last week's rainy weather put a hold on the Metter Tigers’ baseball schedule, but they were able to squeeze in two of the three games of the Jeff Davis series this past Saturday. 

Jeff Davis is a region opponent who is currently ranked 3rd in the region with a 1-1 region record. They are 5-4 for the season.

Although both teams were strong on the hill, Metter defeated Jeff Davis 2-1 in the first game. The Tiger pitchers allowed just six hits to Jeff Davis. 

Randan Rigdon pitched to victory. He went five innings, allowing zero runs on one hit and striking out five. John Luke Glanton threw two innings in relief out of the bullpen and recorded the last six outs to earn the save for Metter. 

Lane Young, Tyler Kirkland, and Brendan Wood each collected one hit to lead the team for the day.

In the next contest, Metter dropped the game to Jeff Davis after the Yellow Jackets had a score late in the game. Metter lost the lead late in a 6-2 defeat to Jeff Davis. 

The Tigers opened up scoring in the first inning when Kyzer Anthony doubled. The game was tied at two with Jeff Davis batting in the top of the seventh when H. Hayes singled on a 0-1 count, scoring one run.

Brian Crooms took the loss for Metter. He went six and a third innings, allowing three runs on four hits and striking out six. The Tigers scattered seven hits in the game. K. Anthony and John Luke Glanton each managed two hits.

Metter began their series against Bacon County earlier this week and will continue Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at Metter High School. They will conclude the series on Friday in Alma at 7 p.m.

The Tigers are currently 4-4 overall and 1-1 in the region.
