The Savannah Christian Raiders had a tough three-game week, but are holding steady to second place in the eight-team Region 2-AA.
McIntosh County Academy beat the Raiders 3-2 last Tuesday, though Nate Sisolak struck out 10 and allowed only five hits. Sisolak also hit a solo homer, and Jonathan Hester was 2-for-4.
Kyle Jones and Kaleb Wynn each homered as the Raiders beat Charlton County 13-8. Chad Boaen went 3-for-5, Jordan Hill went 2-for-3 with a triple and one RBI and Sisolak was 2-for-3 with a double and drove in three runs.
Sisolak got the save in Saturday’s 7-6 victory over Jenkins, working out of a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the bottom of the seventh inning. He also was 3-for-4 with three RBIs while Hester was 2-for-3 and Jones drove in two runs.
Also, at Saturday’s game coach Billy Shelton recorded his 300th win with the Raiders. He began coaching in 1993 and will retire after this year.
He lives in Garden City, but his son Mark Shelton and his family and his daughter Leann Lovett and her family live in Effingham County.
