*****Tonight at 7pm at Ragsdale it will be the Ragsdale Tigers(4-0/2-0) versus the Southwest Guilford Cowboys(4-0/2-0)….This should be the game for bragging rights for the first half of the high school baseball season and we encourage all die-hard HS baseball fans to attend this game in Jamestown this evening….*****

from Monday night with Ragsdale vs. East Forsyth courtesy of Mike Ellis from the Jamestown News….

Ragsdale came from behind in the fifth as Desean Anderson delivered a two run single
on a line shot into left field scoring runners from second and third. Ben Fultz had
gotten the Tigers on the board first in the second inning as he homered in his
fourth consecutive game with a line drive to right field that cleared the 320′ sign.

East Forsyth got their first run in the third on a leadoff double from Luke Dunlap
followed by an RBI single by Evan Orenstein. Those would be the only two hits the
Tigers pitching would allow on the night. Orenstein would eventually score the
second run for the Eagles as he came home on an error.

Zach Hodges got the start for the Tigers and pitched four innings giving up the two
runs, only one of which was earned, striking out six and allowing the two hits.
Tyler Southcott relieved Hodges to start the fifth and pitched three innings of
perfect relief to pick up the win, his first of the year. Southcott faced the
minimum of nine batters and recorded two strikeouts.

Ben Fultz was 2 for 2 on the night with a HR and a single. Desean Anderson was 2
for 3 with 2 singles and the game winning RBI’s.

Pete Schultz pitched for the Eagles and went 5 2/3, giving up 6 hits and the three
runs, two of which were earned. He struck out 11 batters.

With the win, Ragsdale improves to 4 – 0 and 2 – 0 in the Piedmont Triad. East
Forsyth suffers their first loss of the year as they fall to 3 – 1, 1 – 1.

East Forsyth-0 0 2 0 0 0 0 –

    Play of the game may have been the speed of Chris Armwood. He was on second when DeSean hit a ground ball between SS and 3rd into short left field. Duncan Sparks easily scored from 3rd but only someone with Armwood’s speed could have scored on that ball from 2nd base. EF leftfielder made a perfect throw to the plate and catcher Dickerson of EF made a great tag but Armwood just beat it. No one else has that speed.

    Pitcher Schultz looked really good last night for EF.

    One of the main reasons Armwood is so valuable to the team. He didn’t play baseball last year but ran track instead. As he gets more comfortable at the plate after a year lay off he’ll get on base a lot more. In front of Anderson, Fultz and Stone he’ll get plenty of chances to score runs.
