The Bainbridge High School Bearcats baseball team dropped a 12-2 Region 1-AAAA game to the Lee County High School Trojans on Tuesday, in Leesburg, Ga.

The Trojans went ahead 4-0 in the top of the first inning. Luke Roland, who went 4-for-4 in the game, ignited the rally with a one-out double. First baseman Daniel Nichols followed with a triple, driving him home.

The Bearcats, who are 6-5 overall and 1-3 in Region 1-AAAA play, scored both of their runs in the top of the fifth inning.

Third baseman Jackson Jones and first baseman Gunnar Griffin both walked and scored on fielder’s choices.
