(MUMFORD)–THE THORNDALE LADY DOGS CAME

INTO GAME 2 OF THEIR REGIONAL QUARTERFINAL SERIES

EXPECTING ANOTHER GOOD BATTLE WITH LATEXO, BUT

THE LADY DOGS JUMPED OUT IN FRONT WITH 2 HOME

RUNS IN THE FIRST 2 INNINGS AND ROLLED ON TO A

12 TO 2 VICTORY IN 5 INNINGS ON THE 10 RUN RULE TO

SWEEP THE SERIES FRIDAY AT MUMFORD.

THE LADY DOGS WERE THE VISITOR AND BATTED

FIRST. NATALIE GARCIA REACHED, THEN, WITH 2 OUTS,

REAGHAN CARLSON HIT A 2 RUN HOME RUN OVER THE

LEFT FIELD FENCE TO GIVE THE LADY DOGS A 2 TO NOTHING

LEAD. THEN BAILEE BAKER DOUBLED, AND THEN KARIS

GINN HIT AN R-B-I TRIPLE TO SCORE BAKER TO GIVE THE

LADY DOGS A 3 TO NOTHING LEAD. IN THE PROCESS, THE

LADY TIGERS CHANGED PITCHES FROM TAYLOR DISE TO

LAUREN WOODARD, THE GAME ONE STARTER.

AFTER GINN RETIRED LATEXO IN ORDER IN THE

BOTTOM OF THE FIRST, THE LADY DOG OFFENSE WENT TO

WORK AGAIN. KASSIDY EUBANKS SINGLED, AND THEN

LANDRI MARTINKA STEPPED TO THE PLATE AND HIT A

2 RUN HOME RUN OVER THE LEFT FIELD FENCE TO EXTEND

THE LADY DOG LEAD TO 5 TO NOTHING. THEN AFTER

GARCIA WALKED, SHE CAME HOME TO SCORE ON AN

R-B-I SINGLE BY CARLSON TO GIVE THE LADY DOGS A

6 TO NOTHING LEAD.

THE LADY TIGERS GOT BASERUNNERS ON IN THE 2ND

AND 3RD, BUT ONE WAS THROWN OUT AND THE OTHER WAS

STRANDED AT FIRST.

THE LADY DOGS PUSHED THE MARGIN TO 10 IN THE

TOP OF THE 4TH. AFTER ANOTHER LATEXO PITCHING

CHANGE, THE LADY DOGS ADDED 4 MORE RUNS

HIGHLIGHTED BY AN R-B-I DOUBLE BY REAGAN TRAHAN

AND A 2 RUN R-B-I DOUBLE BY KELSEY KOVAR. THE LADY

DOGS LED 10 TO NOTHING AFTER 3 AND A HALF INNINGS.

LATEXO GOT ON THE BOARD AND PUT THE 10 RUN RULE

ASIDE FOR THE MONTH WITH A 2 RUN HOME RUN BY

BAILEY OMELINA TO MAKE IT 10 TO 2 IN THE BOTTOM

OF THE 4TH.

BUT THE LADY DOGS CAME RIGHT BACK IN THE

TOP OF THE 5TH, ANSWERING THE 2 RUNS WITH 2 OF

THEIR OWN. NATALIE GARCIA’S R-B-I GROUNDOUT

SCORED MARTINKA, AND KOVAR’S R-B-I SINGLE SCORED

BAKER TO GIVE THE LADY DOGS A 12 TO 2 LEAD.

THEN, IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 5TH, GINN INDUCED

LAUREN WOODARD TO FLY OUT TO CENTER, STRUCK

OUT MARISSA ALLISON, AND INDUCED CHARLEE BIANO

TO POP OUT TO 3RD TO END IT AS THE LADY DOGS WON

12 TO 2 IN 5 INNINGS ON THE 10 RUN RULE.

LADY DOG HEAD COACH LANCE BETAK SAYS

IT WAS KEY FOR THE LADY DOGS TO GET ON A ROLL EARLY

AND KEEP THE MOMENTUM ON THEIR SIDE…

“THAT WAS THE THING, THAT’S WHAT WE SAID–THAT

THE PRESSURE WAS ALL ON THEM, SINCE WE ALREADY HAD

A 1-0 SERIES LEAD, ALL THE PRESSURE WAS ON THEM. BUT–

WE COULDN’T RELAX AND LET THEM HAVE A GOOD START

TO THIS GAME AND HAVE TO GO BACK TO MADISONVILLE

TOMORROW. WE WANTED TO FINISH IT TONIGHT. WE HAD

CONFIDENCE IF WE HAD TO GO BACK TO MADISONVILLE

WE COULD DO IT. BUT, WHY WAIT FOR A 3RD GAME?

JUST GO AHEAD AND START RIGHT NOW. THE PRESSURE’S ON

THEM.”

THE THORNDALE BULLDOG BASEBALL TEAM

HAS ADVANCED TO THE NEXT ROUND OF THE PLAYOFFS.

THE BULLDOGS RECORDED A SWEEP IN THE AREA ROUND

OF THE POSTSEASON BY BEATING BURTON 10 TO NOTHING

ON THE 10 RUN RULE ON FRIDAY NIGHT, ALSO AT MUMFORD.

BRYSON BERAN GOT THE WIN ON THE MOUND WITH

A COMPLETE GAME SHUTOUT, GIVING UP 2 HITS WITH

6 STRIKEOUTS AND NO WALKS. J-D ALCALAR DREW 3 WALKS

AND SCORED TWICE. LUKE MERZ WENT 3 FOR 3 WITH A

SINGLE, 2 DOUBLES, A WALK, 2 RUNS SCORED AND 3 R-B-I’S.

THORNDALE BULLDOG HEAD COACH KELLY KUHL

SAYS THE DOGS TOOK CARE OF THE BASICS…(KUL16A)

“IT STARTS ON THE MOUND. BRYSON BERAN PROBABLY

THREW HIS BEST GAME OF THE YEAR UP TO THIS POINT. WE JUST

HIT THE BALL. YOU GO LOOK AT THE SCOREBOARD, WE PUT

UP RUNS EVERY INNING. AND YOU KNOW, THAT’S WHAT GOOD

TEAMS DO.”

KUHL ALSO SAYS THE ENTIRE TEAM MADE THIS

WIN HAPPEN…

“AND THEN WE PLAYED GREAT DEFENSE BEHIND

BRYSON, AND JUST A GREAT OVERALL TEAM PERFORMANCE.

LIKE I TOLD THE KIDS, WE HAD 18 GUYS THERE, AND EVERY

ONE OF THEM BUSTED THEIR TAIL TONIGHT, WHETHER THEY

WERE IN THE DUGOUT …BECAUSE THAT WAS PROBABLY

THE BEST DUGOUT WE HAD ALL YEAR, TOO.”
