Buckeye Mitch Lange hit a 2-run single in the first inning to give Bryce Tomlin a 2-0 lead which Gilmer never relinquished as they defeated Henderson 8-1 Tuesday at home at Matt Camp Baseball Park in a District 16-3A game.

Gilmer resumes district action at Spring Hill Tuesday.

Bryce Tomlin, 5-1, had an ERA of 0.9051 going into Tuesday’s game. He struck out nine Lions for a total of 61 on the year. He gave up seven hits Tuesday including a double to opposing pitcher, Dalton Goode, but they were scattered, limiting the damage.

Lange scored Skylar Hollis and Blevin Burns who had both walked in the first.

Henderson cut the lead when Lary singled to right to bring in Hollins in the second, but never scored on Tomlin after that.

Travis Carter scored an unearned run against Goode, when Dylan Bowman hit into a fielder’s choice in the second, increasing the lead to 3-1.

Hollis turned a walk into a run after stealing second and third, when he scored sliding on a passed ball. Hollis finished with three runs scored on a hit, a triple in the fifth which scored Burns, and two walks.

Lange finished with three RBIs with Hollis scoring his second among those when Lange bunted in the fifth.

Tomlin reached on a fielder’s choice, advanced on Carter’s grounder to short, and when Colin Hardin reached on an error. After five innings, the score was 7-1.

Jamel Jackson, running for Jaidon Parrish, scored the final Buckeye run when Hollis reached on an error.
