Thomasville became the first team to win three consecutive Coastal Plain League championships this weekend, beating Florence 7-4 in the final game of the Petitt Cup tournament championships. A pair of teammates from The Citadel combined to score the eventual game-winning run in the fifth, as Richard Jones singled home Chris McGuiness from second to break a 4-4 tie. A third Bulldog, outfielder Sonny Meade, put the game out of reach with a two-run homer an inning later. Patrick Dean (Boston College) picked up the win for the HiToms, working 2 2/3 innings of three-hit relief.
Thomasville was one of the most talented teams in the league (as our CPL top prospects list will reflect), and its talent won out. We’ll have recaps and top prospects lists from 19 summer leagues later this month.
