Bulldogs face another lefty and Appling’s Hale tosses a two-hitter

For the fourth time in five games the Toombs County Bulldogs faced a left handed pitcher and for the fourth time they took a loss. Elijah Hale threw a two-hitter as Appling County defeated the Bulldogs 7-2 in Baxley. Hale had a no-hitter going for 5 1/3 innings. Dalton McBride ended it with a single to center and then George Lucke followed with a single to left center.

The Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. D.R. Meadows and McBride opened the game by drawing walks and Cole Graham grounded out to short to send Meadows to home plate. Graham hit a sacrifice fly in the sixth to drive in Meadows, who walked with one down in the sixth.

With the wind blowing in from center field, in a big ballpark, the Bulldogs hit 13 balls which were caught in the outfield grass. Center fielder Micah Rentz caught seven of the fly balls.
