'Dogs down 'Makers in battle of defense

(Continued)

AUGUSTA —

And Meyers launched a cannon-like throw from center field to prevent a Cairo runner from tagging from third base in the fifth.

“It was definitely a defensive driven game today,” Warner said. “Two teams that are hitting their strides down the stretch.”

Both teams now eye their final stretch of region games as the end of the season draws near.

Cairo (10-12, 9-2), which has all but locked up a spot in the state tournament, plays top-ranked Crisp County on the road on Thursday.

Thomasville (12-9, 4-5) travels to Cook on Thursday, where it will continue its hunt to make a last-push for the postseason.

The Bulldogs play another non-region game on Tuesday against Jefferson County, but nearly no one mentioned it after Monday’s win.

“Our sights are really on region play,” Warner said. “We didn’t really put too much into this game at all.”

 

NOTE: Warner acted as head coach in McDougald’s place due to a funeral the latter was attending on Monday. McDougald, who arrived in the fourth inning, will resume his role for Tuesday’s tilt with Jefferson.
