The Dodge County Middle School Warriors wrapped up their 2014 season last week as they played in the region baseball tournament held in West Laurens. Last Tuesday, Dodge opened the tournament with a 15 to three home win over Toombs County. On Thursday, Dodge played Vidalia with the winner going to the championship. The game was a big pitching battle as Vidalia ripped Dodge two to one.
Dodge made quick work if Toombs County in Eastman. Nick Cummings hit a one out triple. Chandler Davis drove him in for a one to zero Dodge lead. Cade Cranford and Chip Burch both drew walks and they would score for a four to zero Dodge lead after the first. The Warriors would add to the lead in the second. Davis would score on an error for a six to zero game. Cranford got the start on the mound and he struck out a pair in his two shutout innings.
