RANDLEMAN — The Randleman Tigers hosted Southwest Onslow Stallions in the second-round of 2A baseball state playoffs Thursday. The 10-seeded Tigers cruised to a 10-0 win over the 15-seed Stallions. Randleman claimed homefield advantage after they upset 7-seed Reidsville earlier in the week. The Tigers have not yet allowed a run to score by their opponents and have scored 27 runs in two games.

The Tigers will be back on the road Saturday with a game on the Outer Banks against 6-seed First Flight in Kitty Hawk.
