The Troup Tigers headed into region play with a 10-0 home win over Hampton on Saturday.

Rocky Pemberton got the final two outs, both on strikeouts.
The Tigers finished with nine hits, and Reed Morris led the way with three doubles and an RBI.
Tre Mosley had two hits with a double while driving in four runs, and Josh McDonald added two hits with an RBI while scoring three runs.
Colton Webb had a double and two RBIs, and Brett Haynes had a hit.
