TCHS rallies for a Senior Night win, but Metter sweeps Bryan County in a doubleheader to end the Bulldogs season

Seniors- Bryce Deloach, Cole Graham, Dalton Lynn and Brock Harrison

In their final two regular season games the Toombs County Bulldogs came from behind to win two big Region 2 games (6-5 and 9-5 against Swainsboro). However, the Metter Tigers swept Bryan County in a doubleheader (9-4 and 5-3) in Pembroke and since both teams finish their region schedule with 10-8 records the Metter Tigers move on to the GHSA State Tournament while the Bulldogs season comes to an end. Metter took two-out-of three games from the Dawgs giving the Tigers the tie breaker in case of a tie.

On Senior Night the Bulldogs fell behind 2-0 after 2 1/2 innings and 4-1 after 3 1/2. The Bulldogs scored a run in the bottom of the third on a sacrifice fly by senior Bryce Deloach.

Brock Harrison’s homerun swing

In the fourth inning senior Brock Harrison led off with a big swing on a 2-1 pitch which sent the ball more than 360 feet over the center field fence for his second home run of the season and the third of his career. That cut the Tiger lead to 4-2.

In the bottom of the fifth the Bulldogs sent nine batters to the plate and they scored three runs, Chandler Lynn drove in two runs with a backside base hit to left field and Chase Musselman was hit by a pitch with the bases load to score a run which put TCHS up 5-4.

Once again in the sixth inning Toombs County batted around and this time the Dawgs scored four runs. Harrison and Chandler Lynn each walked with the bases loaded and Musselman drove in a pair of runs with a single.
