Bulldogs hit the ball hard, but they have only two hits in a 7-5 loss at Tattnall County

Centerfielder George Lucke (#3 on the right is congratulated after making his second diving catch

Toombs County head baseball coach Brian Fitzgerald calls a hard hit ball which is caught for an out an “At’em Ball”. The coach counted seven of those in the Bulldogs season opening 7-5 loss at Tattnall County. The Dawgs only had two hits. Martin Stephens broke up Trinton Rhoden’s no-hitter with a leadoff single in the top of the fourth and George Lucke singled to center field, off reliever Jacob Todd, to drive in TCHS’s final run with one out in the seventh. Galin Salem also drove in a run by hitting to the right side of the infield.
