———-

The Toombs County Bulldogs (13-7 overall, 7-3 region) wasted no time putting the game away on Tuesday, erupting for a 10-run first inning to dismantle the Brantley County Herons by a score of 18-4.

The Bulldog bats came alive early, lighting up Brantley County starter Carson Coger for 10 runs in the opening frame. Cameron Ledford doubled home two runs, Jesus Quintero, Tucker Braddy, and TJ Stanley each singled in a run, and Trayvone Harris drew a walk with the bases loaded to plate another. Two Brantley County errors also factored into the big inning, along with a sacrifice fly by Jackson Jenkins and a steal of home.

The Bulldog offense continued to click throughout the game, finishing with 14 hits. Jenkins paced the attack with a 3-for-4 performance that included three singles and four RBIs. Brantley Upshaw, Harris, and Braddy also chipped in with multiple hits apiece. The Bulldogs were also aggressive on the basepaths, swiping four stolen bases led by Ryder Sears with two. Defensively, Toombs County was error-free, with Tyson Brantley leading the team in chances fielded.

Harris played a key role in the game for Toombs County. On the mound, he earned the win by tossing five innings and allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits. He struck out four batters and walked four.

The win gives Toombs County a boost of momentum as they prepare to face Brantley County again on Thursday for game two of the three game series. Game time is slated for 5:45pm at home, so be sure to come out and support the DAWGS as they battle through the region schedule.
