The Bulldogs scored 13 runs on 13 hits, led by senior Phillip Anderson, who went 2-for-3 with two homers. Everyone in the lineup had at least one hit.

Saturday's home game with the Evans Knights had to be played at Evans because the Thomson field was too wet from heavy rain.
The move did not put a damper on the Bulldogs' motivation. The Diamond Dogs won 9-7.
Senior Abe Cartlage pitched through five innings and had a two-run homer.
Coach Jason Osborn decided to bring in Nick Rau to close out the last two innings.
The Bulldogs scored nine runs off 13 hits. Senior Dontavious "Juicy" Brown, the leadoff hitter, went 4-for-5 at the plate with a solo home run.
Defensively, the Bulldogs infield played well, anchored by shortstop Rau and second-baseman Cody Corbitt, both seniors. The defense turned one double play.
The Bulldogs were scheduled to return to action Tuesday and home Wednesday against a nonregion rival, Washington Wilkes.
With only three region games left and the much anticipated makeup game with the Harlem Bulldogs, this baseball season has kept fans coming back for more.
