Published 11:22 pm Thursday, March 5, 2009

Charles Henderson’s Thursday trek to Dothan High School was not a good one, as they were swept by the Tigers in a doubleheader.

The Trojans (9-3) lost the first game, 8-7 and Nathan Barron took the loss on the mound. He threw three innings and allowed seven runs on five hits, walked four batters and struck out two.

Troy took the lead early in the second inning at 1-0, but could not hang on for the win. Dothan scored seven in the second and the Trojans cut the lead to 7-5 in the sixth inning, but Dothan added one run in the sixth and that was the difference.
