Thomasville had struggled to find its way at the plate until the Pelham Hornets came to town on Saturday.
The Bulldogs pounded 17 hits and scored in every inning to beat the Hornets 13-3 in five innings.
“Today was the best offensive game for us this season,” said Thomasville head coach Erik McDougald. “We did a pretty good job. We created baserunners and scored a good number of runs, and that feels good.”
Thomasville starting pitcher Payton Dixon paced the Bulldogs’ offensive attack, going 4-for-4 with four RBIs while limiting the Hornets to seven hits and striking out three on the mound.
The Hornets scored a run in the top of the first inning off a double from Cody Goodwin. Thomasville responded, however, with two runs in the bottom half of the inning. The Bulldogs tacked on another run in the bottom of the second to take a 3-1 lead.
Thomasville tallied three more runs in the third inning before an offensive showcase in the bottom of the fourth put the game out of reach.
