It is an unfortunate coincidence but every time Toombs County pitcher Brock Harrison throws 4 1/3 innings of no-hit ball the Bulldogs lose a road game. In 2017 Brock fired no-hit ball for 4 1/3 at Brantley County and the Bulldogs lost and then earlier this season Brock held Long County without a hit, in Ludowici, for 4 1/3 and the Dawgs dropped a non-region game to the Blue Tide.
On Friday, at Metter, Harrison once again was a dominant pitcher for his 4 1/3 innings of no-hit ball and he left the game with TCHS leading 3-0. However, the Tigers rallied scoring three runs in the fifth and four in the sixth in their 7-3 comeback victory.
Brock opened the bottom of the first inning walking a Tiger and then he retired four straight before issuing his next free pass. Once again Harrison grinded out four outs prior to yielding his third walk.
In the bottom of the fourth Harrison retired the first two Tigers and then the Bulldogs made an error. Brock ended the inning with his fourth strikeout. In the fifth Harrison successfully fielded a bunt and threw to first base for the first out of the inning. The Dawgs made a second error and then Brock walked a batter and he was lifted from the contest.
In a game which featured more total errors (9) than hits (6), the Bulldogs were able to break through and score three runs in the third inning. Trey Cloud led off with a single, Chase Musselman reached on a fielders choice bunt and Chandler Lynn drove in the first run of the game with a grounder to short. The Tigers made an error on a ball hit by Bryce Deloach and a run scored to make it 2-0. Cole Graham reached on another Metter error scoring the third run of the game.
Tiger senior pitcher Heston Mosley threw a seven inning one-hitter and allowed only one earned run. He struck out 10 Bulldogs and walked one.
The Bulldogs drop to 2-8 in Region 2 play.
