Even behind the Bulldogs' no. 1 pitcher, Thomson couldn't pull out a region victory against the Hephzibah Rebels on Friday.
Ryan Heacock was on the mound, but none of his teammates showed up at the plate in the 7-3 loss. Thomson (2-6, 1-2 Region 3-AAA) had seven total hits in the game, but nobody had more than one hit.
Ryan Heacock makes his pitch against Hephzibah.
"It's the same old story right now. We're not hitting the ball when we need to. We're not getting people on base, and when we are, we're leaving them on base," said Thomson Coach Brad Smith. "Defensively we didn't play a bad ballgame, but we're still struggling at the plate."
Hephzibah jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning and didn't look back from there. The Bulldogs' runs were scattered throughout the game because of inconsistent hitting, Coach Smith said.
The Bulldogs' next home game is tomorrow against Glenn Hills at 5 p.m.
