THS baseball earns first win


A “nasty squeeze” in the  sixth inning gave Thomasville a come-from-behind, 4-2 win over Taylor County on Saturday.

The Bulldogs took an early 1-0 lead but then allowed two from Taylor before churning in the game-winning three in the sixth.

“We just weren’t very good early; had a few too many strikeouts,” coach Erik McDougald said. “But after we got our feet wet, we started doing the little things right; got some bunts down, stole a few bags – just played some sound baseball.”

Thomasville’s game on Friday was postponed to Tuesday due to rain, and today’s match was delayed roughly an hour. 

Thomasville is afflicted with inexperience early this season – it lost a bulk of its senior starters from last year – but McDougald is impressed with his team’s outset early this year.

“We’re going to be scrappy,” McDougald said. “I don’t think we’re going to beat the brakes off anybody. We’re just going to have to get our wins the gritty way.”

The Bulldogs are off until Tuesday’s rescheduled match against Turner.
