It wasn’t enough, though.
Behind a terrific starting outing from Brandon Dawson, Newnan squeezed out a 1-0 victory to improve to 2-0.
The Tigers, who beat Northgate 2-0 in their season opener on Monday behind a complete-game shutout from Garrett McClurg, fell to 1-1.
The Tigers were unable to take advantage of a handful of scoring chances, and they gave up an unearned run in the fourth inning.
“You always try to tell them, you’re going to learn more from a loss than a win,” Troup coach Craig Garner said. “Hopefully we do. Hopefully we learn from it, and you come back and if you face a similar situation down the road then we can build on this tonight and pull it out.”
The loss overshadowed a stellar job on the mound by Adams and Ozley.
Adams started and pitched five solid innings, and Ozley finished things off with two scoreless innings.
At the plate, the Tigers had five hits, two by Ozley and one each by Garrett McClurg, Dalton Hadley and Brandon Butts.
The Tigers had a great chance to score in the third inning when McClurg doubled and Butts singled to put runners on first and third.
The Tigers were unable to push the run across, though.
The Tigers also put two base runners on in the fourth on singles by Ozley and Hadley, but once again they couldn’t score.
In the sixth inning, thanks to two walks and a hit batter, the Tigers had the bases loaded with two outs, but a strikeout ended that threat.
In the seventh, the Tigers went down in order, and that was that.
Troup will be back on the field Tuesday at East Coweta.
