THS, Cairo eye regional rematches

THOMASVILLE —

Two area teams seek pivotal region wins on Tuesday.

Thomasville (9-8, 3-4) at Brooks (9-8. 2-4):

These teams dished up an offensive thriller on March 14 with a 9-8 outcome in favor of Brooks.

Bulldogs coach Erik McDougald was forced to make an early pitching change after the Trojans jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first inning. Thomasville then charged with a five-run outing in the second to tie the game. Both teams went back-and-forth to the final out.

The Bulldogs had runners on second and third base in the final inning, but couldn’t muster an RBI to tie or win the game.

McDougald said on Friday that Tuesday’s tilt with Brooks “is the season. I know it, the players know it, Brooks knows it. Heck, the whole region knows it.”

Dougherty (3-8, 0-6) at Cairo (8-10, 7-2):

The Syrupmakers scored their most lopsided win of the season against the Trojans in a 25-0 rout on March 14.

Cairo, fresh off its spring break, returns to the diamond after a one-week hiatus – its longest of the season. The Syrupmakers won a pair of 1-AAAA games last Monday and Tuesday against Westover and Monroe, respectively.

Cairo is still in the hunt for the region title, but sits in third place behind Crisp County and Worth County.
