Troup advances to state baseball semis

KATHLEEN, Ga. (WTVM) - The Troup Tigers took advantage of fielding miscues by the Veterans Warhawks to go with two fine outings by Tiger starting pitchers to sweep their GHSA Class AAAA quarterfinal series by identical 4-1 scores on Tuesday night.

Troup took a lead in the first inning of the opener on an unearned run and put the game away with a three-run seventh inning, highlighted by a squeeze bunt that brought home two runs.

The Tigers took an early 2-0 lead in the nightcap and were never threatened.

Next up for Troup is Redan, who swept Locust Grove in their quarterfinal series.

The state semis will begin on Monday at Redan High in Stone Mountain.
