Bulldogs Take Two Wins

Bulldogs Take Two Wins Bulldogs Take Two Wins

The Toombs County High School baseball team played three nonregion games last week and came away with wins in two of them. The Bulldogs lost to Coffee County on Tuesday, but bounced back with wins over Bleckley County on Thursday and then over Tattnall County on Friday.

vs. Coffee

If it wasn't for the third inning, the game would have been a battle for the win, but the Trojans of Coffee exploded in that inning to blow the game open. TCHS got the first run of the game in the top of the first inning. Toombs held Coffee scoreless for the first two innings, but in the bottom of the third the Trojans got a lot of help from the TCHS defense as they scored seven unearned runs to jump out to a 7-1 lead. Toombs added a run in the top of the fourth, but Coffee answered with two more in the bottom half of the frame. Both teams scored one in the sixth inning, but Toombs fell short 10-3 to the Tojans.

vs. Bleckley

Toombs took the early lead with a run in the first inning when Gray Stephens drove in Chandler Lynn to put TCHS up 1-0. That lead did not last long as the Royals of Bleckley put five on the board in the top of the second inning to jump into the lead, 5-1.

Toombs closed the lead to 5-3 with two in the third inning. Lynn and Stephens both walked and an RBI hit from Jason Dukes plated one run. Stephens came in to score on a error to close it to 5-3. Toombs loaded the bases in the bottom of the fourth. Alex Gordy scored on a wild pitch and an RBI single by Chase Musselman brought in two more runs to put Toombs on top 6-5. Toombs added two insurance runs in the sixth inning with Musselman coming in on a ball hit by Stephens, and then Bryson Stanley got an RBI as Toombs took the win 8-5.

vs. Tattnall

Toombs got a run in the second inning to take the early lead when Dukes drove in Stephens for a 1-0 lead. Toombs added a run in the third inning when Musselman came through with an RBI double that scored Lynn for a 2-0 lead.

Toombs added one more run in the sixth inning, when with the bases loaded Gordy hit a shot to third that was misplayed to bring in Stephens. That gave Toombs a 3-0 win over the Warriors.

TCHS is now 7-3 on the year and have yet to enter Region play. This week is the last week of nonregion ball. They played Coffee County on Tuesday after presstime and will be back in action on Wednesday at Portal at 5:30 p.m. and then on Thursday at Washington County at 5:30 p.m. They will wrap up the week on Saturday in Savannah at Benedictine at 1:30 p.m.
