King’s three-RBI double in fourth propels THS to 6-4 win over Bainbridge

THOMASVILLE —

Thomasville parlayed three runs on a double by second baseman Oren King in the fourth into a 6-4 win over Bainbridge in its final game of the Bulldog Brawl on Thursday.

King brought home Zach Zolt, Hayden Donalson and Chapman O’Quinn, who extended the play by scoring on an error as he was sliding into third base. O’Quinn, who finished the day 1-for-3 after a slow summer start, ripped an RBI single with the bases loaded on the at bat prior to tie the game at three.

Donalson, the rising freshman and brother of All-Area first baseman Hunter Donalson, loaded the bases for O’Quinn with a one out blooper into left field. The hit positioned Thomasville to its four-run inning, which propelled the Bulldogs to victory after holding Bainbridge to just two hits and one run over the final three innings. 

“We came up a little bit short; it happens,” Bainbridge coach Brian McCorkle said. “We’ve got to find a way to get a hit or extend that inning.”

THS pitcher Owen House, who sat out this spring after transferring from Thomas County Central, methodically retired a bulk of the Bainbridge batters with the exception of a three-RBI double by Dustin Strickland in the third inning. Strickland was positioned 

by an error on a bad hop to O’Quinn at third base the at bat prior.

Other than that, House notched six strikeouts, two walks and two hits allowed in his 5.2 inning performance.

“He did a heck of a job,” McCorkle said of House. “He threw strikes and really controlled the game. We were able to get some runs here and there, but he did a really good job of filling up the strike zone, and our guys kind of struggled with that today.”
