Hardaway hands Central pair of gut-wrenching losses

THOMASVILLE —

Hardaway handed a pair of gut-wrenching losses to Thomas County Central on Friday, and prevented the Jackets from securing their first region win of the season.

The Hawks built and maintained a 6-0 lead for the bulk of Game 1, then allowed Central to creep its way back in the final two innings.

The Jackets scored one in the sixth then four in the seventh, but couldn’t tie the game to force extras.

Central had seven hits to Hardaway’s ten, but also accounted for four errors.

Jonathan Robinson pitched all seven innings, and threw five strikeouts. 

The Jackets overcome the adversity at the start of Game 2, and jumped to a 5-1 lead through the first five innings. But the Hawks churned in seven runs in sixth and three in the seventh while holding Central scoreless the remainder of the game.

Cooper Mayhall earned the start for Game 2, and Peyton Singletary pitched an inning, and combined to allow 13 hits – most of which came when Hardaway mounted momentum.

Central (5-12, 0-9) is now in the midst of its spring break, but will travel to Cairo on Wednesday, then Bainbridge on Friday, where it will continue its hunt for its first region victory of the season.

The Jackets have seven games total remaining, of which four are amid 1-AAAAA opponents.

Due to deadline obligations, coach Chad Parkerson could not be reached for comment.
