The Thomas baseball bunch is back in the win column after winning Game 2 of Tuesday’s doubleheader against Southern Polytechnic in Columbus.
The Night Hawks were riding a six-game losing streak – their first of the season – that extended into Game 1 on Tuesday.
That skid would’ve nearly extended to this weekend’s series had it not been for Trey Griffin’s RBI base hit in the ninth inning that brought in Jake Desuyo.
It was another case where Thomas jumped to an early lead – this time 4-0, and later, 6-2 – and slowly let the opponent creep back. No. 1 Faulkner accomplished that in Game 2 of Saturday’s gut-wrenching doubleheader loss.
Game 1 was comparable as well, with Thomas losing 1-0 on a walk off hit while notching just two from the plate.
The Night Hawks hope this win will carry momentum as they head into a pivotal conference series this weekend at home against Ave Maria.
Thomas still remains atop the Sun Conference standings despite its recent skid.
“I like where we’re at,” coach Mike Lee said this weekend. “We can still control the conference schedule.”
