It was a heart-stopping finish for the Toombs County Bulldogs on Monday night, as they edged out the Bryan County Redskins by a score of 4-3. The game went down to the wire, with the tension thick in the air at Toombs County High School.

The Redskins got off to a quick start, plating a few runs in the top of the first inning thanks to a single by Sean Kelly Hills. The Bulldogs found themselves playing catch-up early, but they never gave up. They chipped away at the deficit, eventually tying the game at 3-3 in the bottom of the third inning on a single by Jackson Jenkins. Jenkins played a key role throughout the game, driving in two crucial runs.

With the score tied in the bottom of the sixth inning, the game took a dramatic turn. Jenkins, once again in the spotlight, was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, forcing a run home and giving the Dogs a 4-3 lead.

Ryder Sears deserves a shoutout for his stellar performance on the mound. He pitched four scoreless innings, striking out three batters and shutting down the Redskins’ offense when it mattered most. Tucker Braddy led the Bulldogs at the plate with two hits in four at bats.

The Bulldogs’ defense was flawless, not committing a single error throughout the game. They also hustled their way on the base paths, swiping five stolen bases to put pressure on the Redskins’ defense.

This win keeps the Bulldogs’ momentum rolling as they head into their next game at Swainsboro on Tuesday.
