HiToms Return to Martinsville for Start of Home-and-Home Series
The High Point-Thomasville HiToms (6-2) meet the Martinsville Mustangs (5-5) on Wednesday night, in the start of a two-game home-and-home series with their rivals from Virginia.
The HiToms come into Wednesday hot after a 13-1 mercy rule win in game two of a Monday doubleheader, taking a split from the 4-6 Asheboro Copperheads. The HiToms walked nine times in five innings to thrust themselves to victory. HP-T raised their on-base percentage to a league-best .420, tied with the Copperheads for No. 1 in the league.
Ben Peterson takes the mound for tonight’s game. Peterson is one of two HiToms to reach 95 mph on the radar gun this year. The former App State righty has just one official appearance this year, striking out the side in a scoreless inning against the Copperheads. The Apex native will look to shut down an offense that has the best batting average in the Coastal Plain League at .297.
High Point-Thomasville look to stay undefeated on Wednesday night in Martinsville against their CPL foes, the Martinsville Mustangs, at 7 p.m. For live video coverage of the team, head to FloBaseball.tv, and search ‘HiToms’.
