Lyons, GA. – September 7, 2023 | Coach Hayne Brant
Shay Stringer once again showcased her pitching prowess by striking out 18 batters, propelling Toombs County Softball to a commanding 7-1 victory over Metter on Wednesday. Over seven innings, Stringer surrendered just three hits and a single run, only walking one batter.
Toombs got the scoring started in the fourth, capitalizing on an error that brought in the game’s first run. The momentum shifted further in Toombs’ favor during the fifth inning. A timely single from Stringer, followed by another single from Aniston Powell, both brought in runs for the Lady Dawgs.
Throughout the game, Toombs demonstrated their strength at the plate, amassing 13 hits. Mishi Smith stood out, leading the team with a perfect four hits in four at-bats. Natalie Quintero added two hits in her four attempts at the plate. Showcasing their agility, Nora Grace Mercer and Emerson Powell each secured multiple stolen bases for Toombs County.
