Weather Factors in End of Season
The Spring weather decided to factor into the end of the regular baseball season.
On Apr 25th the Tigers hosted Murfreesboro Central Magnet. Bryson Smith took the mound and threw 7 innings and gave up 1 earned run on 4 hits and had 7 strike-outs but got the loss. Logan Thompson and Michael Ashburn had the only two hits as Macon drops a close one by a final score of 0-3. Macon had three errors in the field.
On Apr 26th the Tigers travelled to Murfreesboro. The Tigers got on the board first but tied 3-3 after the 4th inning, Central plated 2 in the 5th and 2 in the 6th en route to a 7-3 victory. Clay Carnahan went 1 for 3 with an RBI and run scored while Tyler Gann and Trent Boles knocked in the other two runs. Carnahan is credited with the loss, throwing 4 1/3 innings and giving up 3 earned runs on 6 hits and 2 walks. Thompson pitched 1 2/3 innings in relief and gave up 2 earned runs on 3 hits.
Macon travelled across the county to face RBS. Austin Herbert threw a complete game and gave up 2 earned runs on 7 hits and 3 walks and picks up the decision. The top of the lineup did the trick as Aaron Colter, Ashburn, and Carnahan score runs and Tyler Gann added the fourth. Thompson and Herbert picked up the RBIs. Herbert held off a late Bulldog threat and won with a final score of 4-2.
The Tigers were to play their final home-and-away on Apr 30th hosting Smith County. However this game was postponed due to the weather. As it is a district game, and will have an impact of post-season seeding, the game will be played as part of a double header scheduled for May 2nd.
Macon is scheduled to end the regular season with the two games at Smith County on May 2nd and a non-conference game at Gordonsville on May 3rd.
