CRESTVIEW — If Crestview High School’s baseball team is to have a chance in District 1-7A games against Navarre, Tate and Niceville next week the Bulldogs must play better than they did Thursday night against McCracken High School from Paducah, Ky.

The Mustangs scored all five of their runs in the fifth inning to take a 5-2 win.

McCracken had already scored twice when Ryan Garner broke the game open with a bases loaded double to clear the bases and break the game open.

It wasn’t as if Crestview didn’t have its share of chances. The Bulldogs had the bases loaded with one out in the third and seventh innings and were unable to score.

“We had our chances,” Crestview Coach Tim Gillis said. “Give those guys credit. They made pitches when they had to.

“They got a big hit when they had the bases loaded. We had some chances and we didn’t (get a hit), but that’s baseball. It’s very frustrating.”

The Bulldogs struck first with a run in the first inning.
