Bulldogs rally past Patriots

The Bulldogs took a 1-0 lead in the third inning.

Dakota Dean got things started with a one-out single. Henderson popped out to center for the second out of the inning.

It looked like the Patriots would escape the inning without giving up a score when Armstrong rolled a routine grounder to the second base. But Pace committed an error trying to force Dean out at second, and Thomason made the Patriots pay with a base hit to score Dean.

The score remained 1-0, favoring the Bulldogs, until the sixth inning, when the Patriots managed three runs on three hits off Crestview starting pitcher Roman Donofro.

Davis Champion took the mound in relief of Donofro in the seventh inning and retired the side to earn the win. Champion got some defensive help from right fielder Justin Rebholz, who made a diving catch on a sinking line drive for the inning’s second out.
