Southwest Guilford 12
Southwest Guilford wins Piedmont Triad 3-A final over Glenn to take first place in the regular season. Double by Brock Hudgen, RBI single by Cal Sutphin, Bo Rein connects with two-run homer in the third, Sutphin adds double and more coming in later tonight…..(I was collecting the previous info from a text message and now here is more on tonight’s game.):
Southwest wins the outright regular season conference title with a convincing win over the Glenn Bobcats. On Senior Night the Cowboys celebrated four seniors, Will Kellam, Bo Rein (NC A & T Baseball scholarship), Seth Blair, and Ethan Ogburn (NC State Baseball scholarship).
The Cowboys bats and Ethan Ogburn were the story tonite. The bats were led by Bo Rein who had a home run, a double and four big Rbiâ€™s. Cal Sutphin was 3-3 with a double, two singles, an rbi and 3 runs scored. Brock Hudgens had a double and a single. Ethan Ogburn had an rbi single and Will Kellam again added another big hit.
Ethan Ogburn was basically perfect on the mound – the games leadoff hitter hit a ball that looked to hit off his foot, it dribbled to the thirdbaseman who appeared to throw him out at first, yet neither ump saw it hit the runner and they ruled the runner safe at first with an infield hit. After that Ethan only struck out 13 of the next 15 batters, the other two were retired on infield ground balls.
High Point Central 4
Game Winning Run was a solo HR by Justin Lassiter in the 8th for HPC…..
The High Point Central Bison made the short trip to Grimsley Thursday night and defeated the Whirlies 4-3 in 8 innings. The game winning hit was a lead-off HR in the 8th by Justin Lassiter off Grimsley reliever, Tucker Rogers. It was a blast that cleared the scoreboard in centerfield. Lassiter also started on the mound and was effective in 4 and 2/3 innings. Tyler Ellis got the win in 3 and 1/3 innings of relief. Grimsley was led by Gabe Dimock’s 2 RBIs and strong defensive play behind the dish.
