SPRINGFIELD -- Rylee Mills pitched another gem for the Effingham County Lady Rebels on Tuesday, blanking Southeast Bulloch 3-0.

Against the Lady Yellow Jackets, Mills logged seven strikeouts and issued no walks.

Harleigh Caine drove in two of Effingham County's three runs with a fourth-inning double. Morgan Coleman and Caleigh Eubanks also stroked doubles.

Julia Carter drove in the Lady Rebels' other run.

The Lady Rebels are set to play at South Effingham at 6 p.m. Thursday in a battle for the top spot in Region 2-AAAAAA. Effingham County is on a 23-game region win streak.
