Matt Horkey got the start for the Tigers and was in control for the night. He struck out 8 batters, only allowed 3 hits and never allowed a runner past first base in the five inning game.
Mason Striplin, who had shut out HP Central on Thursday night, got the start and walked the first two batters he faced. When Matt Horkey hit a line drive back up the middle to drive in the games first run, Stiplin got hit on the hand by the ball and had to leave the game. Ryan Wood came on in relief and the Tigers got two more runs in the inning on a Duncan Sparks double. They scored two more in the fourth to go up 5 – 0 and got two more in the fifth on Matt Horkey and Avery Hodges RBI singles. Glenn went to the bullpen once again and with two runners on and two outs, senior Bryson Harrald hit a shot down the left field line that stayed just inside the foul pole for a walk off 3 run home run as the 10 run rule was invoked.
Ragsdale closes out the regular season with a Piedmont Triad Conference game at High Point Central on Friday night at 7:00 PM. With the Ragsdale win tonight and the HP Central loss to SW Guilford, the Tigers and Bison are tied for second place in the conference. Glenn will close out their regular schedule with a road game at East Forsyth on Friday, also at 7:00 PM.
