Bulldogs score 6 in the 6th in comeback win at Swainsboro

Entering the top of the sixth inning in a key Region 2 game at Swainsboro, the Toombs County Bulldogs were trailing the Tigers 4-0 and the Dawgs had only two hits off righty D.J. Jackson and they both belonged to senior Dalton Lynn.

Suddenly Toombs sent 11 batters to the plate and scored six times in the top of the sixth and they held on to a 6-5 victory which still gives them a chance to finish in the top four in the region which would send the Bulldogs to the GHSA State Tournament.

Toombs County is 9-8 in the region and Metter is 8-8. The Tigers have the head-to-head tie breaker advantage over the Bulldogs. So, the Bulldogs have to finish a game ahead of Metter.

Toombs will end the regular season on Thursday with a 5:45 p.m. game against Swainsboro. It will be Senior Night and five Bulldogs will be honored after the game.

Meanwhile, Metter will close out the season with a Thursday road game at Bryan County and a Friday home game against the Redskins.
