The Troup Tigers pushed a run across in the seventh inning to pull even and force extra innings, but the home-standing Harris County Tigers went on to win 7-6 in nine innings.

The Tigers fell to 3-3 as they continued the non-region portion of their schedule.

Troup will be back home on Friday against East Coweta.

“I love these types of games,” Troup coach Craig Garner said. “You have to fight, scratch and claw for every opportunity, and every run you get. Any little mistake can cost you. I love having the non-region schedule as tough as it is.”

Garner said some early defensive miscues proved costly for his team.

“We had two errors in the first couple of innings,” Garner said. “Each one of those errors led to a run. That’s ultimate what cost you. That’s what we told them after. It’s the errors, the unearned runs. You eliminate those, then it’s not a tied ballgame. We have to make the simple plays, the routine plays.”

Tyler Bunn got the start for Troup and pitched three innings, and Winston Turner came in and pitched the final six innings.

Bo Halcomb, Jonathan Foster, Miles Cameron, Carson Aldridge, Tyler Kemp and Bunn each had hits for Troup.

“I was proud of my guys. We fought hard,” Garner said. “At the same time, we have to execute when the opportunity arises. It’s a process, and we’re going to get better for it.”
