CRESTVIEW — Justin Rebholz threw a three-hit shutout Tuesday night to lead the Crestview High School baseball team to a 4-0 win over Baker.

The Bulldogs scored all the runs they needed in the four-run third inning when, with two outs, they strung together five-consecutive hits.

Roman Donofro's two-run double was the big blow of the inning. The double scored Seth Thomason and Drew Graham, the courtesy runner for Bulldog catcher Austin Armstrong who had singled.

Tate Sweatt doubled home Donofro to make it 3-0. Rebholz helped his own cause with a single that scored Sweatt.

"We are very fortunate to win," Bulldog coach Tim Gillis said. "You've got to get the runs in especially when  you get them there (in scoring position) with less than two outs. We had some good approaches in some situations and we had some bad approaches in some situations.

"We have to get good approaches all the time and the results will take care of themselves, but the approach has to be consistent. Give their guy credit, they pitched well in tough spots and we have to just keep getting better."

Rebholz was sharp on the mound throughout the game and had no tough spots against the Gators (6-9).
