“You’ve got to be flexible, that’s for sure,” Thomasville coach Erik McDougald said. “Weather has not been kind, and I’m afraid we’re going to get some more rain before this is all said and done.”
Thomasville heads into Saturday’s game coming off a 16-0 rout of Jefferson County on Tuesday.
McDougald, however, insists that his team is not yielding complacency. The Bulldogs are quite a green bunch, and taking steady steps towards offensive improvement.
“I don’t really think they took Tuesday’s ballgame in a cocky fashion,” McDougald said. “It felt like it was more of a ‘I finally felt good at the plate for a change’ kind of game. ... We don’t have anything to be cocky about.
McDougald will send the reliable sophomore Bailey Wright to the mound against what he expects to be an aggressive Early County lineup.
“I expect them to play their best game because they always do against Thomasville.
“But I’m very, very comfortable with Bailey Wright. Very comfortable.”
