It was a matchup of former region rivals as BCHS hosted Toombs County Thursday afternoon. The Royals were faced with not looking past the Bulldogs while preparing for tomorrow’s potential region-clinching showdown against Washington County.

Andrew Thompson caught this pop foul.

An RBI single by Lane Kitchens in the second and RBI groundout by Tripp Purser in the third made it 4-0. Kitchens added another RBI single in the fifth. Toombs got a pair of runs in the sixth. On in relief in the seventh, Kitchens worked out of a two on, one out jam by striking out the side as Bleckley won 5-2. He was 2 for 4 with 2 RBI.
