It was a tough week for the Dawson County High School varsity baseball team as they lost three close games to Greater Atlanta Christian. The Tigers lost 2-0 at Greater Atlanta March 12, followed by a 13-12 defeat at home on Thursday and a 16-6 loss on the road on Friday in a game that was much closer than the final score would indicate. Despite the 2-0 series-opening loss, the Tigers (5-9, 1-5 Region 7-AAA) outhit the Spartans six to three, but Greater Atlanta (8-5, 4-2 Region 7-AAA) was able to manufacture a run in the first and one more in the sixth to steal the game. Both pitchers pitched a complete game with Dawson County’s Chandler Caine allowing two runs on three hits with six strikeouts.
