TCHS Splits Opening Week

The Toombs County High School Bulldogs baseball team got their season underway last week with games against the Fighting Irish of Dublin and the Cavaliers of Calvary Day. Toombs blasted their way to a win over Dublin, but fell short down in Savannah.

TCHS vs. Dublin

It took just three innings for the Bulldogs to come out on top of the Irish on Tuesday of last week at home. Logan Knight was on the mound for the Bulldogs and threw a solid game keeping the Irish off the scoreboard. At the plate the Bulldogs got a lot of help from the Irish pitching in the way of walks and hit batters. In the bottom of the first inning six walks and three hit batters plus a few hits led to 13 runs for Toombs. Toombs added three more runs in the second inning, also with help from the Irish pitching. That put TCHS up 16-0 on Dublin, and after holding in the top of the third inning, TCHS had the win by the run rule.

TCHS vs. Calvary

On Friday at historic Grayson Stadium the Bulldogs went up against the Cavaliers, and came up on the short side of the scoreboard.

Calvary took the early lead with three runs in the bottom of the first inning, and then added two more in the second for a 5-0 lead over the Bulldogs. Calvary plated one more run in the fourth inning, and their pitching did the job as they held Toombs to just two hits in the game. The only hits for Toombs came from Dawson Brantley and Chandler Lynn. With that Calvary got the 6-0 win over Toombs.

This week Toombs took on the Portal Panthers on Monday, will face Appling County on Thursday on the road at 6:00 p.m. and Tattnall County on the road on Friday at 6:00 p.m.
