Bulldogs open Region 2 play with a tough loss at Bacon County

Historically, it has been tough for the Toombs County Bulldog baseball team to beat Bacon County in Alma. The last time it happened was in 2008 when senior Trey Mosley pitched six innings of five-hit ball plus he hit a three-run homer and drove in a fourth run with a sacrifice fly in a 9-3 victory.

Cole Graham drives in a run in the 1st inning

In the first Region 2 game of the 2019 season another Bulldog senior came close to duplicating those results. Cole Graham pitched six innings and allowed two earned runs on a windy and chilly night in Alma. He also put the Bulldogs up 1-0 and 2-1 with two RBI singles on 1-2 counts in the first and third innings. Y-101 Play-by-play

However, the Bulldog defense made two errors in the fifth and one in the sixth as Bacon scored a total of four runs to pull out a 5-3 victory. The Dawgs scored their run in the top of the seventh inning on two walks and an infield hit.
