Bulldogs win and lose by large numbers in region games
By Jim Wallace

Chase Smith winds up against the Razorbacks.
The Thomson Diamond Dogs split important region games last week.
On Tuesday, Thomson rolled to Milledgeville and wheeled out with a 13-3 win against the Baldwin Braves. Friday night, a gigantic first inning by the Cross Creek Razorbacks at Bulldog Field led to a 10-0 loss for the Bulldogs.
The second inning was the big one for Thomson against the Braves. The Dogs struck for six runs. Baldwin was only able to push runs across in the first, third and fifth innings.
Thomson leaned on defense as they turned two double plays to bolster pitching by Cade Brown’s five strikeouts and Brannon Gregory’s save.
Thomson smacked 11 hits, with 2-for-3 performances by Dakota Gergen with two RBI and Garrett McClure with a double and two RBI. Gregory was 1-for-4, with a triple and three RBI.
Thomson suffered a power outage against Cross Creek following the first inning barrage.
In the wind and shiver, Louis Campusano smashed a grand slam deep to left center.
The visitors found multiple ways to get runners on base. Walks, hits and errors kept the base paths hot with Razorbacks.
