HiToms Fall, 8-4
FINCH FIELD, NC, – On a cool evening in Thomasville, North Carolina, a hot first inning from the Forest City Owls (14-22) proved to be the dagger for the High Point – Thomasville HiToms (19-20) as they fell, 8-4.
In the top of the first the Owls went to work plating five runs, which ended up being insurmountable for the HiToms who only plated one run through seven in response.
In the bottom of the eighth a two run home run from Cody Lovejoy (Texas State) gave hope to the struggling Tommies. However, bulletproof pitching was too much for High Point – Thomasville as the two run bomb was the only comeback they could produce.
The HiToms take to the road tomorrow traveling to Florence, South Carolina in a game against the Florence Redwolves. Then Friday the HiToms are back home to host the Martinsville Mustangs at 7pm.
