The Bulldogs suffered a 4-3 loss to Franklin County.

Casey Werner toed the rubber and went 3.2 innings and allowed only one earned run.

Unfortunately, two errors on the same play that would have been the third out allowed a Wildcat runner to score to extend their lead to 3-0.

Riley Zink came in an pitched a solid 3.1 innings surrendering two earned runs.

Although Bulldogs hitters had chances throughout the game, they started cashing in towards the latter part of the game getting a run back in the fifth when Seth Gausman singled, stole a base and later scored on a single by Clay Grunkemeyer. Then in the sixth Zink led the inning off with a line drive hit to left backed up by a double by Drew Kiefer. Devin Scripture would drive in a run on a sacrifice fly but the threat ended there. In the seventh the Bulldogs got within one run when Nate Eckstein led the inning of with a single and back to back doubles by Lleyton Ratcliffe and Grunkemeyer plated runs after a strike out Kiefer lined out to end the game on a hard hit ball that just couldn’t find a hole.
