A few other Dawgs would add RBI’s in the inning to push the lead to 4-0. Brantley County would rally late in the game, but the Bulldogs would escape game one with a 4-3 victory.
Jesus Quintero would go 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.
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.
