Lyons, GA. – February 21, 2023 | Coach Derek James
The Toombs County Bulldogs out-hit Metter six to three, but it wasn’t enough to overcome four errors in a 5-4 loss on Monday night.
The Bulldogs gave up 2 runs in the first inning on no hits, 4 walks, and 1 error, but in the bottom half of the inning, the Dawgs were able to tie things up at two with a Trayvone Harris walk who was then driven in by a Brantley Upshaw triple. Kipp Mosley would add single on a 1-2 count, scoring Upshaw from third.
The game stayed even for a few innings until the Bulldogs had another bad inning defensively allowing a few runs on a couple of mishaps in the infield and a handful of walks. The Dawgs found themselves down down 5-2 late, but would rally back with a couple of runs late and almost found a way to win it in the bottom half of the seventh inning.
Trayvone Harris started the game for Toombs County. The right-hander lasted three and a third innings, allowing one hit and three runs while striking out eight. Gavin Hall and Dawson Brantley entered the game from the bullpen, throwing two and two-thirds innings and one inning respectively.
Dawson Brantley led The Bulldogs with two hits in four at bats.
