The High Point-Thomasville HiToms hosted the Martinsville Mustangs on Tuesday night for the first time since June 25th in a makeup game of July 9th’s rained-out contest. Martinsville came away with the win by a score of 5-3.
Gabe Golob recorded an eventful no decision as the HiToms’ starting pitcher, striking out nine batters in 5.1 innings pitched. He surpassed the 40-strikeout mark for the summer. Landon Smith was given the loss after allowing the fourth and fifth runs on a Braydon Webb two-run homer, but Luke Davis had a strong outing relieving him, throwing two shutout innings.
Hogan Windish re-claimed a share of the Coastal Plain League home run lead with his 12th homer of the season in the 6th inning. Windish now leads the league in home runs (12) and runs batted in (42).
HP-T will be back in action on Wednesday night, when they will host the Wilson Tobs. First pitch will be at 7:00, tickets are still available, and the game is available to stream on flobaseball.tv.
