Toombs did have a runner on base in the bottom of the seventh, but again coouldn't come up with the hit.
That sent the game to extra innings. In the top of the eighth inning Bacon got something going as they plated three runs to take the first lead of the game. Toombs was held in the bottom of the eighth as Bacon took the win, 3-0. vs. E. Laurens Toombs came back with a big win over East Laurens on Wednesday. East Laurens was on top 2-1 after the first inning, but two runs by Toombs in the second put them on top 3-2. Then a big 10 runs in the top of the third inning broke the game open.
Toombs added a run in the fourth and three in the fifth, while holding the Falcons to just three more runs. That gave the Bulldogs the win, 17-5. vs. JD
Toombs was hanging with the Yellow Jackets over the first three innings as both teams had base runners, but couldn't put any runs on the board. In the top of the fourth inning JD finally broke out with a run on a fielder's choice. That gave them a 1-0 lead.
JD pushed the lead to 3-0 in the fifth inning, and then extended that to 5-0 in the sixth inning. Jeff Davis added a final run in the top of the seventh inning as they won over Toombs, 6-0.
