The Toombs County High School Bulldogs baseball team took on the Herons of Brantley County last week in a three-game Region series. The Bulldogs were the #2 team in the Region but dropped two of the three games to switch places with Brantley. Toombs are now behind Appling and Brantley and hold the third place in the Region, with just this week left in the regular season.

Game 1

In Game 1 of the doubleheader, the Bulldogs from Toombs County got out to a fourrun lead in the first inning and held on for a 4-3 victory over the Herons.

The Bulldogs opened up the scoring in the first inning when they strung out six straight hits. Kipp Mosley singled on a 3-2 count, scoring the first run off the game. A few other Dawgs added RBI’s in the inning to push the lead to 4-0.

Brantley County rallied late in the game, but the Bulldogs escaped Game 1 with a 4-3 victory.

Jesus Quintero went 2-for-3 at the plate to lead Toombs County in hits, and Trayvone Harris picked up the win on the mound for the Bulldogs. The righty went seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits, striking out five.

Game 2

The second game didn’t turn out so well for the Bulldogs even though they jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning on a Harris double.

The Dawgs carried that 2-0 lead into the fourth inning, but a couple of timely hits and a few errors gAve Brantley County a 3-2 lead. The Herons pulled away from there to defeat the Bulldogs 9-2 to even the series.

Lucas O’Conner took the loss for Toombs County. O’Conner allowed five hits and three runs over four innings, striking out four. Tucker Braddy, Harris, Will Watts, Dawson Brantley, Kipp Mosley, and Tyson Brantley each collected one hit for the Bulldogs.

Game 3

The Bulldogs made the long trip to Nahunta on Wednesday for Game 3 of the Region series against the Brantley County Herons. Unfortunately, the Dawgs could not get the bats going and fell to the Herons 5-0 to lose the series.

Jesus Quintero took the loss for the Bulldogs. The righty went three innings, allowing two runs on four hits and striking out three. Tucker Braddy also threw three innings. He walked 4 and struck out 1.

Cameron Ledford, Trayvonne Harris, Will Watts, and Dawson Brantley each collected a hit for Toombs County. The Bulldogs played well in the field, not committing a single error with Tyson Brantley having six chances, the most on the team.

Toombs is in the final week of the regular season this week as they face off with the Bears of Pierce County. Toombs was at home on Monday and in Blackshear on Tuesday for the first two games of the three-game series. They will play the final game on Wednesday in Lyons at 5:45 p.m.

Pierce comes into the week in fifth place behind Vidalia who is in fourth. Toombs needs to get a couple of wins to stay in third place with Vidalia facing #1 Appling County this week. Brantley County is done with their Region schedule.
