    Good question…We know Avery Hodges got the win and we will have to check with Mike Ellis(Jamestown News) on that one and we will…..

  • Andy Durham said,

    Matt Horkey got the start for the Ragsdale Tigers on Wednesday vs. Rockingham County…

    Here is the word from Mike Ellis at the Jamestown News:

    Matt Horkey started for the Ragsdale Tigers and he went two innings. Gave up one hit, 2 walks, 5 K’s, no
    runs. He looked good.

    Ragsdale has two more games this week, @ Wheatmore today and Conley in
    Wilson on Saturday. Trying to limit Horkey’s innings this early in the
    season with two more games and then 3 games the next two weeks, 4 of them
    Conference games.
