Cory Allen, Josh King, Jake Pigg, Jeremy Skinner, Logan Lovvorn, and Dane Whitworth were all major contributors in the five inning shutout.
The tight-knit group of seniors were determined to win their last home together and they all came up big in the ballgame and afterwards they all showed great class and appreciation towards one another, Coach Brent Adcox, and the entire Cornersville program.
out early as bats sear with heat
The Bulldogs hit early and hit often as they threatened in the first, but did not score. The second inning was a different story as Brett Rodgers led of with a double in the right-field gap, seniors Logan Lovvorn and Josh King walked to load the sacks, and Eric King drove a single through the middle to score two runs.
After a strikeout, senior Corey Allen hit a long sacrifice fly to Josh King to make it 3-0 and Chuck Bassham knocked in Allen to give the Dawgs a 4-0 lead.
Cornersville scored their fifth run in the fifth inning on Allen's second RBI of the game, driving in Eric King from second.
Brewer was overpowering in the top of the fifth as he easily set the Hawks down in order single-handedly. Brewer fielded all three outs on a set of 1-3 putouts and an unassisted pop out.
It was senior night for the game and it was fitting that it was the upperclassmen that finished the Hawks off in the bottom of the fifth inning. Catcher Jake Pigg led off by taking a pitch in the forearm for team. Brett Rodgers singled to left to put runners on first and third and Lovvorn singled to make it 6-0.
Josh King ripped a triple to right-field to clear the sacks to make it 8-0. After a 4-3 put-out, senior Dane Whitworth laced a triple to make it 9-0 and put the game ending runner on third base. Corey Allen came up and scorched his last home hit up the middle to end the ballgame and send his senior class out in great style with the 10-0 victory.
Lovvorn, who has been on the team two years stated after the game, "It feels great to win the game and I am sad it is over. I have played baseball my entire life and it really goes quick. I love coach Adcox, he is the best coach I have ever had. I love everyone on the team, they are all my brothers."
The Bulldogs open district tournament play on Thursday versus Culleoka in Huntland at 4 pm.
