'Dogs dominate

Thomson put on a hitting clinic in an 18-0 home win on Friday over Josey in an abbreviated conference game because of the 10-run rule.

The Bulldogs slammed 12 hits and had seven walks in the three-inning contest. Pitcher Andy Grimaud led the Bulldogs, going 3-for-3 with two home runs in the first inning and collecting 6 RBI. Phillip Anderson went 2-for-3, including a home run in the first.

Also collecting multiple hits for the Bulldogs, 4-0 in conference, was Nic Wood, 3-for-3.

"We squared them (bats) tonight," Thomson baseball coach Jason Osborn said.

In a lopsided game such as this, Osborn said you play it like you play any opponent.

Grimaud (1-1) pitched to only 10 batters, striking out seven. Emmanuel Henry was the only batter to reach base on a walk for Josey, 0-4 in conference.

"Outstanding team," Josey coach Kim Lovett said. "One through nine can play ball."

Grimaud, batting second, started the hit production with a blow to right in the first, driving in Jesse Usry, who walked. Anderson followed with a blast over the left-field fence.

Thirteen batters hit in the inning with five collecting hits, and 15 batted in the second. Grimaud hit a line drive home run to right later in the inning, driving in Cody Corbitt and Usry

Josey starter Anthony Taylor pitched one inning before being relieved by Antwan Braddy in the second.

Thomson, 9-2 overall, scored nine runs in both innings.
