Yellow Jackets deny Bulldogs a second region win with a 4-run 7th inning

For four innings the Toombs County Bulldogs had a 2-0 lead over the defending AA State Champs. In the top of the fifth Jeff Davis rallied and scored a pair of runs to tie the game at 2-all and then in the top of the seventh the Yellow Jackets scored four more to pull out a 6-2 win at Jacky Jones Field in Lyons.

The Bulldogs dropped to 1-7 in Region 2 play while the Yellow Jackets are 6-2 and are tied with Benedictine for second place behind 7-1 Vidalia.

Toombs County jumped to a 2-0 in the first inning. Chandler Lynn walked for a team-high 13th time, Bryce Deloach reached on an error and Martin Stephens hit a 1-2 pitch into center field scoring Lynn. Cole Graham grounded out to the right side which scored Deloach.

Graham kept the Yellow Jackets off the scoreboard for the first four innings. The junior right-hander retired JD three-up, three-down in the first inning. He yielded a single in the second, hit a batter in the third inning and gave up a second single in the fourth.

In the fifth the Yellow Jackets put runners on second and third inning with a single, a hit batsman and a sacrifice bunt. A sacrifice fly ball to left field and a Dawg error plated the two bases runners to tie the game at 2.

In the top of the fifth Graham hit the leadoff batter and walked a Yellow Jacket with two outs. However, he stranded the runners at first and second with a strikeout.

With one down in the top of the sixth inning Cade Walters broke the tie by smashing a first pitch over the left field fence. Alex Sanders singled and scored on a Chandler Davenport double. Jashaun Kirby doubled in a run and Garrett Baucom hit a sacrifice play to scored JD’s sixth run.
