THS seniors hammer Selma

Prior to high school sports being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Thorsby Rebels baseball team crushed Selma 17-2 March 13 and improved to a record of 8-3.

The THS offense flexed its muscle on several occasions throughout the contest, including a six-run first and third inning.

Tanner Jones had a dynamite day at the plate and finished a single shy of hitting for the cycle.

However, he made up for it with a pair of home runs to go with a triple and double.

Six of Thorsby’s 17 runs were driven in by Jones.

Other Rebels who had highly-productive games with a bat in their hands were fellow seniors Jacob Lockhart and Tucker “Dale” Patterson.

Just like Jones, Lockhart was a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate and had four RBIs, while Patterson went 3-for-4 with a walk.

Selma pitching had no answer for Thorsby, which tied its run tally with 17 hits in the game.

Jones, Patterson and Lockhart also put together a strong performance on the mound by combining to allow just one earned run on four hits with 10 strikeouts.
