Bulldogs Fall to Brantley County in Game Three Despite Strong Effort from Upshaw

Lyons, GA. – April 6, 2024 | Head Coach Derek James


Brantley Upshaw struck out 10 batters, but the Toombs County Bulldogs fell to the Brantley County Herons 5-2 on Friday. Upshaw allowed three hits and four runs over five innings while walking four.

The Bulldogs got on the board in the third inning after an Upshaw home run squeezed past the right field foul pole, scoring two runs. Unfortunately, this was all the Bulldogs could muster at the plate that day.

The Herons captured the lead, 4-2, in the bottom of the fifth when Mason Thomas drew a walk, scoring one run, and Brody Yeomans homered to right field, scoring three runs.

Upshaw led Toombs County with two runs batted in. The left-handed hitter went 1-for-2 on the day. Upshaw, Jackson Jenkins, and Tucker Braddy each collected hits for the Bulldogs.

Next week, the DAWGS finish out region play with a series against Vidalia that starts at home on Tuesday. Game time is slated for 5:45 pm. This series is crucial for the Bulldogs as a win would solidify a spot in the GHSA State Playoffs.
