The Toombs County High School Bulldogs Baseball team ended their season with a commanding 10-5 victory against the Metter Tigers on Tuesday of last week.

The Tigers initially took the lead, when a Tiger doubled to score the opening run. However, the Bulldogs quickly responded, snatching the lead in the bottom of the first inning. Clutch hits were the theme as Brantley Upshaw, Jesus Quintero, Jackson Jenkins, and Kipp Mosley each drove in a run, turning the tables early on.

The Bulldogs extended the lead further in the second inning, capitalizing on a costly error by the Tigers’ defense, and were able to add two more runs in the fifth inning, as well as another three in the sixth. These runs proved to be enough to pull out the Senior/ Recreation Night victory.

Trayvone Harris pitched with poise and purpose for the Bulldogs, earning the win. In his three innings, Harris fanned three batters keeping the Tigers’ bats at bay. TJ Stanley stepped up in relief, delivering a hitless and near-flawless performance over three and two-thirds innings, and Senior Caleb McCoy came in to retire a batter to capture the last out, highlighting the Bulldogs’ depth on the mound.

The Bulldogs now turn their attention to post season play. Toombs took on Jordan in the first round of the GHSA AA State Playoffs. It was a best-of-three series with the first two games on Tuesday of this week. If necessary, they will play game three on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.
