Bryce Harrison and Brock Harrison had never played baseball on the same school team until this season. Both dress for both the varsity and junior varsity Toombs County Bulldog teams. In a junior varsity game at Vidalia the two brothers combined to drive in half of the Bulldog runs in an 8-0 victory improving the young Dawgs record to 3-0.
Brock, who batted second and started the game on the mound, went 3-for-4 with a double and one RBI plus he pitched three innings of shutout ball. Older brother Bryce drove in three runs with a grounder to short, a sacrifice fly and a swinging bunt. Bryce drove in single runs in the second and the fourth and then the Bulldogs scored three runs in the both the fifth and seventh.
On the mound Brock allowed three hits and kept the Indians scoreless with some clutch pitching and a fine throw from right fielder Dalton Lynn, who throw out Matt Moye at the plate for the final out of the first. Vidalia loaded up the bases in the second and third with one out. However, each time Harrison got the second out on a ball hit in the air and the third out with a strikeout.
Dalton McBride pitched the fourth, fifth and sixth innings and only allowed two hits, back-to-back singles in the the fifth. He struck out five with no walks. Martin Stephens pitched the seventh and struck out three Indians, walked one and gave up a single.
In three games this week the varsity and junior varsity Bulldogs did not allow an earned run in 21 innings and the staff only yielded 10 hits.
