Dallas County dominates Bibb County

Published 12:00 am Sunday, March 28, 2004

Dallas County’s Justin Hollis must have forgotten a piece of his uniform Friday night as he took the mound against Bibb County.

For some reason, the Hornet’s superman wasn’t wearing his cape.

While Hollis isn’t exactly the Man of Steel, just yet.

His fastball was kryptonite to the Bibb County hitters.

With the help of some solid defense behind him and a good game from Clint Cooper behind the plate, Hollis struck out 11 Bibb County hitters, allowing only two hits and no runs.

Hollis also had a homer, a single, two walks and two runs scored for the Hornets who established themselves as a force in their area.

In addition to Hollis, several other Hornets had good days as well.

Roman Paxton doubled, walked twice and scored twice. Cooper walked twice and scored twice.

Tyler Hollis single and scored as did Dalton Anthony.

Justin Irwin doubled and scored as well.

“If we get pitching performances like this and put the ball in play, if we can do that we’ve got a chance,” Thomas said.

Dallas County, who improved to 7-3 on the year wasted little time getting on the board.

Paxton walked and after a strikeout, so did Cooper and J. Hollis to load the bases.

T. Hollis had a single that got Dallas County on the board and Shane Moreland added base knock.

After a scoreless second, J. Hollis had a one out solo homer in the third.

T. Hollis followed with a single and later scored as Anthony and Moreland followed with singles.

Doubles from Irwin and Paxton helped round out the scoring in the bottom of the sixth inning.
