Pierce pitches Hounds to two region victories

Have yourself a dandy week, why don’t you, young man.

Senior right-hander Hunter Pierce helped Jones County get off to a decent start in Region 4-5A play, pitching two complete-game victories in the Greyhounds’ last three outings.

Oh, and he also drove in early go-ahead runs in both of the wins.

Jones County split with Ola last week to open the region portion of its schedule, winning 5-2 at home on Wednesday but falling 10-2 at Ola on Friday.

The Greyhounds hosted Eagle’s Landing in another region game on Monday, and Pierce pitched a one-hit shutout in a 3-0 victory.

That makes Jones County 2-1 in region play and 6-5 overall.

The Greyhounds play at Eagle’s Landing on Wednesday and host Stockbridge on Friday in more region action.

“He’s had two great outings his last two times out,” Jones County coach Jason Page said of his long and lanky pitcher. “He’s basically said, come on, you guys ride my back. You need someone to step forward like that, and he has the mentality for it.
