Musselman shuts out Bryan County 5-0 on 63 pitches while Graham drives in 3 runs with two hits

Chase Musselman

Chase Musselman did something that Bulldog head coach Derek James said he had never seen. The sophomore right-hander threw a complete-game three-hit shutout on just 63 pitches. That is nine pitches per inning. 45 of his pitches were strikes and the only three hits he allowed in a 5-0 Region 2 win at Bryan County were leadoff singles in the first, fifth and sixth innings. Y-101 play-by-play

Chase struck out five Redskins and didn’t walk one as he induced seven groundouts and eight fly ball outs. He never had a three-ball count on any batter and he only had six two-ball counts. From the first through the fourth he retired 11 in a row as he improved his record to 2-1 with a save. Musselman also matched Bryan County’s hit total with three singles in a 3-for-4 day and he drove in one run in the sixth.

Senior catcher Cole Graham drove in the first three runs of the game. With one out in the first inning Brock Harrison hit his seventh double of the season to left field. Two pitches later Graham hit an 0-1 pitch for a RBI single. In the bottom of the first leadoff hitter Tucker Dyson singled on an 0-1 pitch. However, he challenged Graham’s arm and the catcher threw him out trying to steal second base.

The Dawgs added to their 1-0 lead in the fifth. Musselman reached on an infield hit to lead off the inning. With two outs Chandler Lynn and Harrison walked and then for the second time- on an 0-1 pitch- Graham stroked the big hit driving in two runs as he added to his team lead in RBI which is now 18.

In the sixth Toombs County scored two more runs.  Dalton Lynn reached on his second straight infield hit and Bryce Deloach went backside with plenty of power and tripled to the right field fence. Musselman singled on a 1-2 pitch to drive in Deloach.

The 10th ranked Bulldogs are 10-4 overall and 4-1 in the region and for the first time this season they have a four-game winning streak. Vidalia wrapped a three-game sweep of Swainsboro with a 6-1 win on Thursday. The Indians lead the region with a 5-0 record, Jeff Davis is 3-0, the Bulldogs are in third place and 3-2 Bacon County is fourth.
