Bulldog Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Two nice wins on the road out of region against a very competitive Raceland team, Plenty of offense in game 1 capitalizing on opportunities in almost every inning.”
“… Bryce Blevins had another great outing going 6, allowing 2 earned runs.”
“…Game 2 struggled for most of the game to figure out the Heighton kid offensively. But CJ Fairchild was stellar after a shaky start and slammed the door on every Raceland opportunity after the 1st inning. Big night for Parks and Roe to bring us back in the 6th and go ahead in the 7th.”
