For the second time in three days the Toombs County junior varsity baseball team rallied for a come-from-behind victory. The Dawgs overcame a six run deficit at Appling by scoring 10 straight and in their first home game of the season they bounced back from 3-0 score with a four run fifth in a 4-3 victory over Metter.

Both teams controlled the game from the mound. Starters Bryce DeLoach, for Toombs, and Metter’s Hunter Young each pitched hitless ball for the first three innings. Brock Harrison broke up Hunter Young’s perfect game with a two-out double just shy of the left field fence in the fourth. DeLoach also pitched a hitless fourth before leaving the mound. Three other Bulldogs reached on hits. Jalen Mobley singled to left center in the the fifth, Noah Anderson singled in the same frame and lefty Martin Stephens hit a double to deep right center field in the sixth.

Metter stroked three hits. Will Funderburk had a RBI single in the fifth off reliever Cole Graham. Danton Crooms had a one-out single in the sixth and Tucker Wells had two-strike, two-out single in the seventh off Graham. Cole struck out back-to-back Tigers in the sixth to strand runners at second and third and he struck out two batters and handled a grounder to end the game and pick up the win. Graham earned a save in the Appling victory. Cole also through out two base runners trying to steal second base in the fourth inning.
