East Coweta completes sweep of Tri-Cities

by Staff Reports

After losing for the first time this season to Northside-Columbus on Monday, everything has fallen back into place for the East Coweta Indians over the last two days.

The Indians used a no-hitter to compete the Region 3-AAAAAA three-game sweep by way of a 13-0 five-inning victory over the Tri-Cities Bulldogs.

The Indians outscored the Bulldogs 33-0 during the three-game series and allowed just two hits. With the sweep, East Coweta improved to 20-1 overall and 10-0.

East Coweta finished off the Bulldogs as three pitchers combined on the no-hitter for the Indians.

Cole Amtmann pitched three innings and struck out two. Brandon Ruston and Dalton Chocallo each pitched an inning, with the latter adding a strikeout.

The Indians broke the game open with seven runs in the top of the second. They also added four runs in the third and two in the fourth.

Paced by a triple and a single, the Indians' Bryce Gemmel knocked in four of the teams runs. Tim Manning added two singles and drove in two runs en route to the victory.

Jordan Lewis, Austin Bellamy, Travis Williams and Stephen Cruver also added RBIs en route to the victory.

East Coweta now gets ready to play a three-game Region 3-AAAAAA series against rival Newnan.

The winner of the Indians-Cougars series should decide who earns the region’s No. 1 seed heading into the Class AAAAA state playoffs.
