Bulldogs take Bacon County series with an 8-6 win in Alma

After losing the first game of their Region 2 season opening series at Bacon County the Bulldogs rallied against the Raiders taking the next two games to win the set. The Dawgs took game three- in Alma- by an 8-6 score which was deceiving in two ways. First off the game was tight for six innings with the Bulldogs leading 3-1 going to the seventh and then TCHS scored five runs in their final at bat to build up an 8-1 lead. Bacon also scored five times in a wild seventh in which both teams batted around. Y-101 play-by-play

The win at Bacon County was the first for the Bulldogs in Alma since the 2008 season.

The Bulldogs opened up a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Bryce Deloach was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and Chase Musselman drove in the second run with a ground out to short.

Coach Derek James played some small ball in the fifth with Musselman, Chase Miller and Trey Cloud all reaching on bunts to load the bases and Chandler Lynn put the Bulldogs up 3-0 with a run scoring single on a 3-2 pitch.

The Bulldogs had plenty of other scoring opportunities throughout the first six innings as they left 12 runners on base including nine in scoring position.

Bacon County scored it’s first run off starter Brock Harrison in the sixth inning. Caleb Houston hit a triple to right and scored on a RBI single by Cooper Brown.

With one out in the top of the seventh inning Bryson Stanley came off the bench and singled to right on a 3-2 pitch. Chandler Lynn doubled in a run, Harrison smacked a two-bagger which scored two more Dawgs and Cole Graham and Deloach each singled in a run.

In the bottom of the inning the Raiders stroked three hits and took advantage of Toombs County’s second error to score five runs.

The defensive play of the game was a rare 5-2-6 double play which ended the fourth inning. With runners on first and third, Jacob Smith hit a grounder to Deloach at third. Bryce threw to home plate and Graham applied the tag for the first out and then he noticed the other runner breaking for third base and he threw to Musselman and the shortstop tagged out the runner at third.

Brock Harrison

Harrison pitched 6 2/3 innings and allowed nine hits and three earned runs with four strikeouts and five walks as he improved his record to 4-0. Dalton Lynn ended the game with a strikeout and picked up a save.
