The Toccoa 11 and 12-year-old All-Star baseball team opens up pool play with a win.
Toccoa used strong pitching from Mason Kimsey and aggressive offense to come from behind to beat Madison County 14-6 Saturday in the district tournament’s opening game in Danielsville.
Pitching in relief of starter Gabe White, Kimsey struck out nine in four innings and held Madison County to just two runs after Madison jumped on top early.
After that, Toccoa’s offense took over and plated two runs in the third inning and four in the fourth to turn a 5-2 deficit into an 8-5 lead.
Toccoa added five more runs in the fifth inning and one in the sixth for the final margin of victory.
Offensively, Ty Kellar had three hits and four RBIs for Toccoa, including a two-run homerun. Dawson Sorrells also had two hits and three RBIs, including his own two-run homerun to help Toccoa’s cause.
Ben Hobbs and Carson Brock each also scored twice for the Toccoa All-Stars.
With the win, Toccoa moves to 1-0 in pool play, while Madison County falls to 0-1.
Toccoa next plays on Monday at 8:30 p.m. in Danielsville against Rabun County.
