Blue Ridge is picking up where it left off last season, topping Travelers Rest in a two-game series to extend its region win-streak to 13 games.
Freshman Jamie Williams got his first win for the Rebel baseball team, as Byrnes topped Greer 2-1 Monday night.
Williams also had the go-ahead RBI in the game, sealing a much-needed win for his team.
Freshman Jack Thompson also had a strong outing for the Rebels, going 2-3 from the plate during the defensive battle.
The week didn’t go according to plan for head coach Travis Pitman and the Riverside baseball team.
“Scheduling last week was a nightmare,” Pitman said. “The storm dropped a ton of rain and hail on our field, so we had to cancel Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s games and reschedule our region game with Hillcrest on Saturday.
The Byrnes softball team took care of business last week, shutting out Dorman and Gaffney for two solid region victories.
The Rebels scored eight runs in the second inning against Dorman, but did not score again until the fifth, when Byrnes broke free for four more runs to end the game.
