The HiToms were not able to right the ship on Saturday night, falling 20-2 in Asheboro. High Point-Thomasville fell to 3-1 on the season with the loss, their first in the chase for the Deep River Cup.
Despite the final score, the HiToms were able to create a couple of offensive highlights. Greensboro native CJ Johnson hit his second home run of the season for HP-T, and his first in Coastal Plain League play. Luke Spiva ran his hitting streak up to five games with a first-inning single and a double in the third. Von Seibert smashed a double to left field in the fourth and one batter later, the HiToms right fielder Alex Stone drove in a run.
This was the second time this year that the Asheboro Copperheads have reached 20 runs. On Opening Day, the Forest City Owls lost 20-1 to the Copperheads.
