High Point-Thomasville HiToms 5, Kernersville Bulldogs 4
High Point-Thomasville got an unorthodox walk-off home run in the bottom of the 5th from Catawba’s Jeremy Simpson to beat the Kernersville Bulldogs in a rain-shortened game exhibition game Monday night, 5-4.

Simpson smoked his second home run of the evening over the centerfield wall with no outs in the inning to score Northeast CC’s Christian Dumont and give the HiToms their first lead of the night. Mere moments later, umpires signaled a lightning delay that would ultimately bring the game to a close 30 minutes later.

The Catawba junior sparked all the offense for High Point-Thomasville on the evening, blasting his first home run in the bottom of the first well past the Finch Field scoreboard, scoring UNCW’s Kip Brandenburg and Chowan’s Jared Fry.

The HiToms were forced to play from behind after Kernersville hit three solo home runs in the opening frame to take a 3-0 lead. That advantage grew to 4-0 in the top of the third on an RBI single before Simpson made it 4-3 with his first dinger.

Simpson finished the night 2-3 with 5 RBIs – Dumont and Fry combined for the only other two hits for HPT.
