Thomson’s Cade Brown hits a ball to centerfield.
The Thomson Bulldogs lost two region games and defeated a neighboring foe in baseball games last week.
The Dogs lost 7-3 at the Cross Creek Razorbacks on March 21. Thomson came back Thursday to shutout the Lincoln County Red Devils 15-0 in Lincolnton in a game called by the mercy rule. On Friday, Thomson lost 16-2 to the visiting Burke County Bears in a mercy-rule shortened game.
Against Burke County, errors in fielding were the main culprit said Thomson head coach Brad Smith.
The loss puts the Dogs, 7-7 – 1-2, in a bind, and means other teams control Thomson’s destiny, something coaches and players don’t want.
