The Adairsville Tigers and Jones County Greyhounds split a baseball doubleheader Saturday in Gray, GA.
Adairsville won the opener 8-1, but Jones County blanked the Tigers in the second game, 8-0. Adairsville started fast in the first game by posting six runs in the top of the first inning and that would be plenty for Tigers’ starting pitcher Kyler Pelfrey.
Pelfrey tossed six innings and allowed only one run. He scattered five hits and a walk while striking out five. Caden Gibbs needed only ten pitches to close out the seventh inning without allowing a baserunner. He fanned one.
RBI singles by Halen Huskins, Garrett Mishoe, and Chase Horn highlighted the Tigers’ six-run first. Adairsville also took advantage of a hit batsman and three Greyhounds’ errors in the inning.
Horn and B.J. Roper finished with two hits each. Hunter Hice and Pelfrey had the other Adairsville hits.
In the second game of the doubleheader, Jones County used three pitchers to blank the Tigers, 8-0.
Chandler Wooten (5.2 IP, 0R, 2H, 3BB, 1K) pitched into the sixth inning to earn the win for the Greyhounds (3-4).
Huskins and Pelfrey had the only Adairsville hits in Game 2.
Adairsville (4-1) plays at Coosa Tuesday, hosts Coosa Thursday, and entertains Armuchee for a doubleheader Saturday.
