Streak ends for Diamond Dogs

The Thomson High School varsity baseball team saw this season's longest winning streak of five games come to an end last week. And it was to a team the Bulldogs had already beaten once this season.


Clay Dent takes a cut during Saturday's win against ARC.

Thomson lost on the road to Glascock County 7-11 on April 13. The Dogs had defeated Glascock County 14-4 in Thomson on April 3 as the third game in their recent winning streak.

The team found its winning ways again at home on April 15, though. Thomson beat Richmond Academy 14-2 in a mercy rule shortened game.

ARC jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but Thomson responded by nearly batting through the order twice in the bottom of the first to build a 12-2 lead. The Bulldogs built on that in the next inning and held on for the win.

Thomson's game against Hephzibah on April 18 ended after The Mirror's deadline. The Bulldogs play host to Cross Creek on April 21 and Glenn Hills on April 25, both at 5 p.m.
