The Dawson County Tigers baseball team lost their first two games of the season during Saturday’s doubleheader against the North Hall Trojans.
The Tigers lost 12-0 in the first game on Saturday afternoon and then lost the second game 16-2, allowing ten runs in the final inning of that game.
These losses come after the Tigers played at North Hall High School on Tuesday, Mar. 3 and won 2-0. During that game, Bo Lewis went 3-3 and scored both runs for the Tigers. Luke Mulberry had the only run batted in (RBI) for the Tigers. Ole Miss Commit Hudson Sapp pitched and only allowed one hit while striking out seven.
In an interview previewing the series, Head Coach Dwayne Sapp said that they knew the Trojans would be one of the best teams that the Tigers would face all season.
“We didn’t get any sort of momentum so it was just a long day,” Sapp later said.
The 9-2 Tigers will look to continue their overall success this season against the 7-4 Cherokee Bluff Bears.
“Hopefully we respond well,” Sapp said. “I’m not sure. We’ll just have to see.”
The series against the Bears began Monday, Mar. 9 at Dawson County High School. The Tigers lost that game 14-2, but the series will continue on Wednesday night.
