Lady Bulldogs rise up and beat Fitzgerald for 2nd win of the season

For the first three innings of their non-region home game against Fitzgerald the Toombs County Lady Bulldogs were playing the same kind of ball they have been playing during their seven game losing streak. One of their main problems has been leaving runners in scoring position. The Lady Dawgs left runners on second and third base in both the first and second innings and by the bottom of the fifth they were trailing 4-1. However, that is when this game changed drastically. Toombs sent 12 batters to the plate and scored six runs as the girls held on to their first win in a month and a day- a 7-6 victory.
