Toombs County’s Lane Adams started his first game on the mound of his senior season and he finished it too. A 7-1 home win over Tattnall County. For the first time in his career Lane pitched a seven inning complete game allowing five hits with a career-high eight strikeouts and just one walk. Adams is 2-0 and has allowed only one earned run in 12 2/3 innings this season.
The only run Lane allowed was a first pitch homer run over the right field fence by Jacob Todd with two down in the first. Todd stroked two doubles and drove in two runs in the Warriors 7-5 home win over Toombs to open up the season. In a key rematch, in the third inning, Todd came to the plate with two down and runners on second and third. On his first full count Adams induced a grounder to first by the left-handed hitter.
The Dawgs rallied from their 1-0 deficit in the bottom of the first. Adams walked, Martin Stephens singled and George Lucke slapped a pitch into left to drive in a run and Brock Harrison doubled to deep right to bring in two more Dawgs. A fourth run scored on a Warrior error.
Toombs scored a run in the third and two more in the fourth. Adams doubled to open up the fourth and Stephens walked to set the table. Shortstop D.R. Meadows hit a sacrifice fly to right to drive in the first run and Lucke singled in the second.
