FINCH FIELD, NC, July 10 – On a hot afternoon in Thomasville, NC the Asheboro Copperheads (23-14) shut out the HiToms (18-19), 8-0 in game one of two. However, the Tommies returned the favor in game two shutting out the Snakes, 3-0.
In game one the story was simple; hot bats for the Copperheads and slow offense for the HiToms.
However, in game two the script was completely rewritten when runs for both teams were hard to come by thanks to lights out pitching from the mound by both teams.
The biggest play was an Alec Paradowski (Wofford) three run home run in the bottom of the sixth to propel the HiToms to the 3-0 win.
Five HiToms travel to Florence, South Carolina Sunday morning for the All-Star weekend and are not back home till Wednesday (7/15) when they host the Forest City Owls at 7:00 p.m.
