After two wins on Feb. 20 at a tournament at Victory Christian School, Thorsby has outscored its opponents 51-5, or 13-1 per game.
At Victory, the Rebels defeated Ashville, 20-0, and the hosts, 9-2.

Carroll was backed by Brantley Bice (3-for-5 at the plate), Wesley Smitherman (1-for-3 with a double), Jace Maddox (a double in his one at-bat), and Evan Bryan (1-for-5 with a double).
Shane Beam was effective in three innings of relief of starter Brantley Bice and drove in three runs to lead Thorsby in the second game of the day.
Bice earned the win, allowing one run and striking out eight in four innings of work.
Beam struck out five and hit a three run-scoring double in his only at-bat.
Bryan was 2-for-3 with a walk at the plate, and Joseph Prather was 2-for-4 with a walk and a double.
