Dawgs dominate Hawks

by Wayne Craig

The varsity Bulldog baseball team only chalked-up one more hit than the visiting Hawks last week, 9-8, but Team Green completely dominated when it came to the score beating Canyon Lake, 10-4. Neither team played error-free ball but it was Canyon Lake that struggled the most with eight errors in the game.

The Bulldogs hit well in the bottom of the first scoring two runs off two doubles. Burnet also scored two runs in the second inning to take an early 4-2 lead. The second inning scoring was led by a RBI single hit by Rowdy Holmes that plated Reid Dalrymple.

Canyon Lake moved a little closer with one run scored in the top of the third making it 4-3 Burnet.

Burnet once again posted two runs in the bottom of the fourth and that offense was kicked-off by a Peyton Utsey triple that scored Dalrymple.

Burnet carried a 6-3 lead through five innings before really pulling away in the bottom of the sixth. The Bulldogs scored four runs in the sixth thanks in part to a Steven Gallardo RBI single, a Canyon Lake error, a wild pitch, and a sacrifice by Colton Barksdale.

The Hawks posted one run in the top of the seventh and the game eventually ended in Burnet’s favor, 10-4.

Utsey had the biggest hit of the night with his triple. Hunter Reagor, Koby Edwards, and Gallardo each hit doubles.
