  • ()
The Cedartown High School Bulldogs baseball team won their fifth straight sub-region game on Tuesday.
Playing at Gilmer in a Region 7-AAAA, sub-region 'A' game, the Bulldogs used dominating pitching to pick up a 5-1 win.
"Daylon Gates had a standout performance," head coach Shane Williams said.
Gates pitched 5 1-3 innings for Cedartown, striking out six batters while overcoming four walks. Gates allowed only two hits and one run, which was unearned. Gates also contributed at the plate by going 1-for-2 with a sacrifice, two runs, an RBI and two stolen bases.
Carson Hatch pitched the final 1 2-3 innings, striking out one and allowing only one hit.
Offensively, Cedartown (12-4 overall, 5-2 sub-region) had eight players get at least one hit. Blake Oxenreider had a double and an RBI and Cody Mesta added a double and an RBI.
Kory Lindsey, Jimmy Hand, Brandon Cheatwood, Harrison Barnett and Hatch all added one hit each. Brett Prince had a sacrifice and an RBI for the Bulldogs.
"Brett has been awesome at the catcher position the last four games," Williams said.
Williams noted that Cedartown's fifth straight win came because of a team effort.
"Last night, everyone contributed either at the plate or defensively," Williams said. "The boys are having fun."
Cedartown will play Gilmer (9-6, 3-4) at home Wednesday at 5:15 p.m.
