Musselman vs. Crooms is decided by a single run

In a fantastic pitching matchup between two sophomore right-handers (Toombs County’s Chase Musselman versus Metter’s Brian Crooms) the only run of the game was scored in the top of the third inning on three Metter hits as the Tigers pulled out a 1-0 Region 2 win at Jacky Jones Field in Lyons. Y-101 play-by-play

The loss stopped TCHS’s win streak at six games and dropped the Dawg record to 12-5 overall and 6-2 in the region. Metter is 5-10 and 1-7.

Antoine Deloach led off the Metter third inning reaching on an error. Tyler Kirkland singled and then on a 2-2 pitch Walker Dollar pulled the ball into right field to score Deloach. Right fielder Trey Cloud did get an out on the play with a perfect throw to third base.

The Bulldogs left four runners on base including two in scoring position at third base in the second inning and at second in the sixth.

Bryce Deloach sends a double down the right field line
