Troup comes up short against Redan in game 3

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -

The Troup Tigers season has ended after a 3-2 loss to Redan in game three of the state semifinals. 

The Tigers jumped out to an early lead. They scored two runs in the first inning. 

They gave back one run to the Raiders in the bottom of the second.

Pitchers for both teams shined until the sixth inning when the Raiders took the lead and scored two runs.

The Tigers failed to score in the top of the seventh inning and that is how their season ended.

This is the second year in a row that the Tigers have come up one step short of the state championship series. 

"This team right here has definitely exceeded our most expectation," said Troup head coach Craig Garner. "We definitely feel like the good lord has been on our side and helped us every step of the way. We have got a great group of kids."

The loss was still tough on the Troup family.

"We should be playing Saturday. It was one great ride, I wouldn't trade anything for it. It's my family," said Troup pitcher Jarred Adams.

The two straight semifinals is helping to create a strong legacy for Troup baseball.
