Potent offense and more from Tigers' first three games

Mar. 6—Throughout the first three games of the season, the Tahlequah Tigers have gotten off to a hot start. With three wins, THS is rolling through the early stages of the season.

Runs in droves

Through the first three games of the season, the Tigers have been lights out at the plate. Through the first three games, the Tigers have picked up 41 runs for an average of 13.6 runs per game.

Through three games, the Tigers have not played past the fifth inning, with every game going to a run-rule win.

Limiting runs

While the offense has been putting up runs in spades, the Tigers' pitching has been just as good. Teams have scored just a single run off the Tigers this season.

Along with teams having trouble scoring off the Tigers, they have struggled to reach base in general. Overall, THS' opponents have picked up just five hits this season. The first two games of the season saw THS give up one hit in each game. While the Tigers gave up their first run in game three, they still only allowed three hits.

Northington's strong start

Brayden Northington's senior season is off to a strong start. The senior has played an early key role on the mound and the batter's box.

Throughout the early season, Northington has been hard to hit. In his first appearance, the senior didn't allow a base hit, with just three walks. In his second start, Northington allowed one run, but allowed just three hits to pick up his second win of the season.

At the plate, Northington has driven in seven runners, while picking up five base hits to sport a .625 batting average. Northington has picked up three RBIs twice this season.

THS is back in action at 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 7 at Charles Page.
