HiToms offense explodes in ninth inning to win fourth straight game

Ten runs on five hits, five walks, one hit batter, and one error. That's how the HiToms put up their single biggest crooked number of the season as Jared Fry (Chowan) came up with the game-winning, two-RBI single in the ninth inning, and the HiToms defeated the Florence RedWolves 13-3 on Saturday night at Sparrow Stadium.

With Saturday's win, the HiToms have won four in a row overall, including each of their last four road contests dating back to last Saturday's win over Holly Springs. Logan Workman (Lee University) got the win as he pitched four shutout innings, striking out five and keeping HPT in the game. Luke Davis (Louisburg) put together a solid start for the Toms, allowing only two earned runs over five innings while striking out three. 

High Point-Thomasville got the scoring started in the first inning as Blayne Jones (Dallas Baptist) scored Bryce Butler (Catawba) on an RBI double, and Josh Baker (Middle Tennessee State) hit a sac fly to score Luke Hancock (Mississippi State) to double the Toms lead to 2-0.

While Florence would get one back in the bottom of the inning, Bryce Butler (Catawba) reached on a fielder's choice to score Luke Spiva (Winston-Salem State) and make it 3-1. The RedWolves would add a run each in the second and fourth innings with a pair of RBI singles to make it 3-3. 

The HiToms will be back at Finch Field on Sunday when they host the Asheboro Copperheads with first pitch set for 7:30. Stop by the park for the final Bark in the Park night at historic Finch Field, presented by Thomasville Vet.
