Thomasville won Friday’s game on simple small ball.
The Bulldogs capitalized on a horde of walks, sacrifice flies, stolen bases and other extraneous ways to churn the bags. No batter had more than two hits.
“A good team night is the best way to describe it,” Thomasville coach Erik McDougald said. “Everybody chipped down a little bit. It was my kind of baseball.”
Thomasville jumped to an early 2-0 lead when Bayley Wright and Zach Zolt walked, advanced on a sacrifice bunt from Thomas Rayburn then scored on a passed ball.
Hunter Donaldson added another score in the third after walking, stealing second, reaching third on a passed ball then scoring on a throwing error.
After scoring another two in the fourth, Thomasville added three in the fifth on a bizarre series of ricochets from a simple grounder to third.
“That ball was all over the place,” McDougald said. “You’d have to see the play to believe it happened.”
Wright, who threw a little over five innings with six strikeouts while allowing just one hit, earned the win from the mound, though Morgan Meyers pitched a solid final two innings, McDougald said.
“Any time you can pitch a shut out, I don’t care who you play, it’s awesome,” he said. “Seminole sure as heck is no push over team.”
Thomasville (7-5, 2-2) is off the rest of the weekend, and resumes region action in a road tilt at Cook on Tuesday.
