Bacon County opens Region 2 play with a DH sweep of the Bulldogs

Saturday doubleheaders have not been kind to the Toombs County Bulldogs. They have played three sets of them and lost all six games. In four of the six games they have not scored a run. That is exactly what happened at Jacky Jones Field as the Bulldogs opened up Region 2 play losing a pair of home games to Bacon County 15-0 and 2-0. The Bulldogs have not scored a run in their last four games.

The Bulldogs had a combined six hits on the day- two in game one and four in the second game.

Toombs County drops to 3-10 overall and 0-2 in the region. Bacon is 2-0 and 5-3. The third game of the series will be played on April 3 in Alma at 6 p.m.

In the first game sophomore catcher Jason Dukes had both TCHS hits in his 2-for-2 game. In the second game the Bulldogs smacked four more singles. Gray Stephens went 2-for-3 and Chandler Lynn and Bryson Stanley each went 1-for-3.

Both starting pitchers threw efficient seven inning games- on less than 90 pitches in game two. The winner- Trey Thomas- needed only 71 pitches and he yielded four hits with four strikeouts and no walks. Logan Knight took the tough loss. He threw 86 pitches and allowed four hits, and one earned run with five strikeouts and one walk.   

Logan retired the first nine Raiders in a row before Chase Kirkland hit a double to lead off the top of the fourth inning. Kirkland scored on a Dawg error. A lead off single by Brady Cothern and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Caleb Houston tallied the second Bacon run in the sixth inning. 

In his last 15 innings the sophomore lefty has given up only one earned run with 11 strikeouts and three walks.
