Bulldogs turnaround after a rough start and a rain delay and run-rule Bryan County 14-4

Jacky Jones Field gets wet
The coaches and Mat Lynn prepare the field for play

For two innings the Toombs County Bulldogs didn’t look the the Toombs County Bulldogs and they certainly weren’t playing like a Top 10 team. After Bryan County scored three unearned runs in the top of the second the Redskins had a 4-0 lead and then mother nature intervened. A small rain storm forced an hour and twenty-seven minute delay and when the Bulldogs came back they scored 14 straight runs to win the Region 2 game 14-4 in six innings at Jacky Jones Field in Lyons.

There were two other factors in this unusual game. Redskin starting pitcher Tucker Dyson was removed from the mound after the delay. He had been suffering some shoulder issues and was making his first appearance on the hill this season. In the first inning Dyson hit a Dawg and retired the other three. In the second an error, a single and a walk loaded the bases with one down and then he struck out the next two batters to leave them full.

In the third inning- after the delay- the Bulldogs scored nine times against the bullpen. Dalton Lynn singled in the first run, Bryce Deloach drove in two more with a single to tie the game, Trey Cloud hit a RBI single to put the Dawgs up for good at 5-4. Chandler Lynn and Brock Harrison each drove in a run with a sac fly and then something strange happened.

Bryan County’s catcher got tangled up with the home plate umpire trying to catch a foul pop behind the plate. Redskin head coach Jason Roundtree pulled his catcher from the game leaving his team with eight eligible position players. That meant Bryan County only had two outfielders. Bulldog catcher Cole Graham, who extended his hitting streak to 11 game by going 3-for-3, took advantage of the shorthanded Redskins by pulling a triple down the left field line.

The Bulldogs scored thee more runs in the sixth to end the game in six innings. Chandler Lynn, who went 2-for-4, doubled in a run, Harrison singled in a run and Graham ended the game with a RBI single.

On the mound Harrison survived a tough first two innings to pitch a complete game giving him a 5-0 record. He allowed an earned run in the first and had a chance to get out of the second without giving up a run, but the Bulldogs made three errors.

After the rain delay Brock did not allow another hit. He retired 11 Redskins in a row and wound up pitching a four-hitter with three strikeouts and three walks.
