JV Dogs win fourth straight, top East Jackson
By Greg Sullivan
With three straight wins under their belts going in, the JV Diamond Dogs didn't let the cold weather cool their bats as they out-slugged East Jackson 21-11 on the road Thursday night to extend their win streak to four and improve their record to 7-5.
The Dogs jumped ahead 8-1 in the second inning, and despite a relative stall for three innings offensively, they exploded for 12 runs in the final two innings to pick up the lop-sided win.
East Jackson was able to inch closer midway through, making the score 9-6 at one point, but with Morgan County's staggering offensive output East Jackson's threat was short-lived.
"It was miserably cold and we played like it was cold," said JV Dogs Head Coach Josh Reeves. "We played well enough to win, but we cannot continue to win games giving up 11 runs."
Reeves, however, said the team did have some things to be happy about in the sloppy win.
"It was a good team effort, staying in the game in the terrible conditions," Reeves said.
Zach Bryant was 2-2 with two RBI in the win.
The team hosted Oconee County on Tuesday. They visit Jackson on Thursday for their first of three straight road games.
