THS drops another tight tilt to Bainbridge


Four runs in the final two innings propelled Bainbridge to a 6-2 win over Thomasville at the Bryant-Garner Athletic Complex on Wednesday, giving the Bearcats a 2-1 advantage over the Bulldogs in their three meetings this summer.

Bainbridge broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth when a runner scored from second base in lieu of a wild throw to first on an infield grounder. Another runner scored on two Thomasville errors in a single stolen base attempt.Bainbridge added its final two in the seventh after loading the bases then pelting a two-RBI double in the gap.

Thomasville struck out the side in its final plate appearance.

“It wasn’t as pretty as we would’ve liked,” said THS assistant coach Ron O’Quinn, filling in for Erik McDougald, who is on vacation with his family. “We left some runners in socring position, but that’s [typical for] summer time.

“You want to get in those situations, where it comes down to the wire. And I think Erik would back me up in saying this because I heard him say it the other night: the big thing we’re aiming for this summer is that we want to be able to finish. That’s been kind of the mantra.”

Temperatures lingered in the low 90s at first pitch, and played a factor throughout the evening.

But O’Quinn noted his satisfaction with THS pitcher Owen House, who threw 6.1 innings and registered five strikeouts.

“That’s what you look for in the summer time – a kid that grinds like that, gets guys out and throws strikes,” he said. “He was sweating profusely and you could tell he was getting a little tired, but he battled. I was really proud of how he played.”

House broke the ice with the game’s first score on a solo home run during the second inning.
