Will Allen’s dominance continues as HoCo shuts out TCC on the road

The Houston County Bears baseball team made the trip to southwest Georgia to play the Thomas Co Central Yellowjackets and the result was a 4-0 Bears shutout victory behind another dominating pitching performance from junior Will Allen however, the offense was not at its usual high power as HoCo had 26 at-bats but only six hits in the process as the visitors stranded several runners tonight.

The Black, Silver, and White got the scoring started in the top of the second when Christian Wahiwe hit an rbi single to drive in Ethan Buffone to make it 1-0 Bears and Hudson Sherman would be walked to carousel the bases to drive in Troy Carpenter to make the score 2-0 HoCo and the Bears plated their third run in the top half of the third when Vick Gann scored on a wild pitch.

The visitors plated their final run of the contest win Isaiah Galason grounded into fielder’s choice that would drive in Noah Odom to make the score 4-0 HoCo in the top of the fourth and that would be the final score of the contest as the last three 1/2 innings went scoreless.

HoCo SP Will Allen recorded his fourth consecutive shutout as he would pitch the entire game surrendering no runs on four hits, walking two, and striking out six in the process while the Jackets’ pitchers combined to allow four earned runs on six hits, walking six, and striking out five in the process.

Three Bears recorded one rbi and they were Isaiah Galason, Christian Wahiwe, and Hudson Sherman. HoCo improves to 14-3 overall; 7-0 in region play and will host the Yellowjackets in a region doubleheader on Thursday as Friday looks to be a washout and Thomas Co Central falls to 8-8 overall; 2-5 in region play.

HoCo senior catcher Eli Stephens was snake-bit tonight as he possibly could have had two jacks tonight but TCC’s centerfield is a staggering 395 feet which is very deep for a high school baseball diamond.
