Bulldogs Lose Second Game Of The Double Header

By Manuel Polanco


   The Bulldogs came into the second game of the doubleheader swinging and got runs on the board early.

   Freshman catcher Vida Rodriguez began with an RBI single in the first inning that got a run on board. The scoring didn’t stop there, as third baseman Isabella Frank had an RBI single that scored Rodriguez and a runner on third. This helped propel the Bulldogs to a quick 3-0 start.

  This lead would not hold however as the Hawks responded quickly and scored three runs of their own in the top of the third inning.

   Frank helped lead them out of the 3-4, and in the bottom of the third inning she hit an RBI-single that would reclaim the 4-3 lead for the Bulldogs. The Hawks answered with runs of their own, tying the game yet again, but Vida Rodriguez striked again with an RBI single that scored two runs and extended the lead to 6-4. Rodriguez had a good game as she netted herself 3 RBIs and went 2-4.

   The Hawks were not going down without a fight, as they would not only tie the game but take the lead in the sixth inning making it 7-6. An error in the bottom of the sixth inning by the Hawks let a runner score for the Bulldogs, tying the game 7-7 until the top of the seventh inning.

   The Hawks had an RBI single in the top of the seventh and scored the decisive run, winning 8-7.
