They say when it rains it pours and that is exactly what happened on Tuesday night at Frazier Field as the Dothan Tigers avenged an earlier season loss to Charles Henderson (5-3) with a 12-1 pounding.

Leading just 1-0 in the top of the fourth, Dothan’s Adam King started off a four run inning with a solo shot over the left field wall and in the sixth inning the Tigers added to that lead, scoring seven runs on just four hits with five errors being committed by the CHHS infield.

To say it wasn’t a pretty day at the park would be an understatement.

The Trojans’ David Taylor scored his team’s only run of the day, answering King’s homer with one of his own in the bottom of the fourth. Taylor’s hit, like King’s, went sailing over the "Blue Monster", Frazier Field’s 25-foot tall wall that was just added to the park in the preseason.

Dothan pitcher Brad Buchanan held his own against CHHS batters, with Jason Barron the lone Trojans’ player to threaten from third base, that being in the bottom of the second inning. Buchanan gave up five hits to the Trojans with just the one earned run.

The CHHS junior varsity team (3-0) swept Northview of Dothan in a doubleheader on Monday, also at Frazier Field, 10-0 and 5-2.

Matt Johnson was the winning pitcher while Brett Pierce and Chase Clower led the JV Trojans’ batters, with each player going 3-for-3 at the plate. Tyson Pugh went 2-for-2 also for the Trojans.

In the second contest, David Dody pitched a complete game, picking up the 5-2 win. Dody led the hitters also with two RBIs on just one hit. Pierce and Jake Kitchens had a hit a piece with each bringing home a runner and Blake Wise also had a hit for CHHS during the game.

Both the Trojans’ varsity and the junior varsity will be in action again on Friday against Wetumpka. Game time is at 5 p.m.
