Despite Lucke’s big night the Bulldogs lose by 2 at Bacon

Toombs County senior George Lucke had a big night in Alma. The center fielder went 2-for-3 with four runs batted in and he made two spectacular catches in right center field. However, the Bulldogs spotted Bacon County five runs in the first two innings of their Region 2 game and they were never able to mount a complete comeback in a 7-5 loss. The Dawgs fall to 6-8 overall and 2-3 in the region.

Lucke opened up his big night hitting a three run homer, with two outs in the fourth inning, to deep center. Lucke’s first career Bulldog homer. George also doubled in a run in the fifth. In his last three games against Screven County, Benedictine and Bacon Lucke is 5-for-9 with a homer, three doubles and eight RBI’s.

Lucke is also known for his amazing defensive abilities and he showed them in the fourth and sixth. First he ran down a hard hit ball in right center and caught the ball with a last second leap. Then in the sixth he ran full speed and with a dive caught a ball in the gap.
