Kodi Cortez scored the game-winning run from third base with two outs on a wild pitch. Metter had a chance in the bottom of the eighth to tie the game. A leadoff walk and a sacrifice bunt moved the runner to second. Bulldog catcher Cole Graham tried to throw out Brendon Wood at second base, but his throw sailed into centerfield. Chandler Lynn scooped up the ball and threw a perfect strike to Bryce Deloach for a tagout at third base and then reliever Chase Musselman ended the game with a strikeout.

Musselman threw two innings and allowed one hit to improve his record to 3-1. That single to lead off the seventh was eliminated when Musselman began a 1-6-3 double play.- the Bulldogs 12th of the season.

Cole Graham

Graham was the starting pitcher and he threw the first six innings and allowed only three hits and no earned runs with six strikeouts and six walks.

Graham, as usual, was an instigator on offense. In the first inning he hit a sacrifice fly to drive in Chandler Lynn, who had walked and stolen a base, to put the Bulldogs up 1-0.

In the third inning Bryson Stanley lead off with a walk, Trey Cloud bunted him to second base and Graham drove him in with a single. That basehit extended Cole’s hitting streak to 12-games. The RBI was his 20th of the season which leads the team. 

In the fifth Brock Harrison walked for a second straight time and Graham doubled him to third base. Cortez was at the plate with two-outs and two-strikes and the freshman singled up the middle to increase the TCHS lead to 3-1.

Bryce Deloach opened up the sixth with an infield hit and when the throw to first got away he ran all the way to third base. With one down and dealing with an 0-2 count, Stanley hit the ball up the first base line to score Deloach to make it 4-1 Dawgs.

Metter came back in the bottom of the sixth inning and tied the game by scoring three unearned runs. John Luke Glanton tied the game at 4-all with a grounder to second base.
