Donofro, Bulldogs stop Gators

Published: Friday, February 15, 2013 at 11:34 PM.

The last three innings were another story as Crestview batters delivered nine hits and scored all 11 of their runs.

Donofro showed that he wasn't just a one-trick Bulldog as he had three hits to lead the Crestview attack.

The Bulldogs broke the scoreless tie in the top of the fifth inning as they struck for three runs.

Donofro singled to start the inning and courtesy runner, P.J. Grainger, who was running for Donofro, stole second base. A scorching grounder up the middle off the bat of Justin Rebholz scored Grainger.

Rebholz scored as Tyler Henderson reached on a Gator error and Henderson scored on another Baker fielding miscue.

Baker (0-1) responded in the home half of the fifth with a run off of Crestview relief pitcher Davis Champion.

Champion retired the first two batters he faced with no trouble, before hitting a streak of bad luck that started with a walk to Josh Long and ended with long scoring on the only Bulldog error of the night after Taylor Carlisle reached on an infield hit for the Gators.
