Spring sports scores from Thursday

The class AAAAAAA third-ranked Hillgrove Hawks baseball team finished out a three-game series against the fifth-ranked North Paulding Wolfpack, winning 6-3 to claim the series.

North Paulding won the first game on Tuesday 3-1, but the Hawks bounced back to claim a close 3-2 win yesterday. Tonight, the bats were alive for Hillgrove as the Hawks doubled the amount of hits for North Paulding with 8. A two-run first inning gave Hillgrove an early edge, but the Wolfpack would tie the game in the top of the second. Hillgrove strung together a pair of 2-run innings to regain the lead and go up 6-2 heading into the fourth. After two scoreless innings, North Paulding sent a runner home, but would fail to tack on anymore runs for the remainder of the game. Senior pitchers Austin Heard and Fred Wilson each struck out two batters for the Hawks’ bullpen, while Brennan Richardson came in during the seventh to close the game. 

Hillgrove, now boasting a 22-5 record, await a three-game series against class AAAAAAA sixth-ranked North Cobb.
