The Effingham County Rebels baseball team stranded 11 runners Tuesday night and fell 10-2 to the Glynn Academy Red Terrors in Brunswick.

Zach Dotson was 2-for-3 as the Rebels were held to four hits, though they drew nine walks.

“We just never got them in,” assistant coach Clint Hodges said.

Jay Flexer led the Red Terrors (8-10, 2-5 Region 3-AAAA) with a 3-for-4 night. Tommy Jones had a two-run homer.

The Red Terrors struck for four runs in the first inning off Dylan Scott and added four more runs in the fourth inning to put the game out of reach.

The Rebels (12-8, 3-4 Region 3-AAAA) will host Ware County on Friday night at 6 p.m. in their last regular season game.

Ware County and Wayne County are tied atop the region standings at 4-2. Brunswick (3-3) is a game ahead of the Rebels and holds the head-to-head tiebreaker.

It also will be Kids’ Day for the Rebels, with all kids admitted free with a paying adult if they wear their baseball jersey or Effingham County High School summer camp T-shirt. Kids also will stand alongside Rebel players in the field during the playing of the national anthem.
