The High Point-Thomasville HiToms used seven shutout innings from starting pitcher Taylor Sugg to propel them to a 3-0 victory against the Savannah Bananas on the road in Grayson Stadium.
Sugg allowed just three hits and struck out three before giving way to Tyler Holcombe, who closed the game with two scoreless innings to earn his third save of the season.
The victory sends the HiToms to their first Petitt Cup Championship Series since 2008, when they won their third straight Petitt Cup. The series kicks off Thursday at historic Finch Field with game one against the Morehead City Marlins.
