Stewart, Bobcats shock Bulldogs

Published: Thursday, March 20, 2014 at 02:04 AM.

A two-out walk to Kaleb Newborn kept the Bobcat inning alive. Back-to-back hits by Emory Anderson and Jeremiah Watkins scored Newborn.

Abdo was called for a balk with Anderson on third and Watkins on first allowing Anderson to score.

Crestview had the bases loaded on Howell with nobody out in the bottom of the sixth when Pierce Cadenhead connected for a leadoff single and Hunter Sullivan and Gillis drew back-to-back walks.

Corey Armstrong hit into a fielder’s choice that retired Cadenhead at home for the first out of the inning. Austin Armstrong popped out to short for the second out and Abdo popped out to right for the final out of the inning.

A pair of Bulldog errors allowed the Bobcats to pick up an unearned insurance run in the top of the seventh.

“We’ve done that (gift wrapped runs for the other team) time and time again,” Tim Gillis said. “We had the bases loaded there in the sixth with no outs and we were in a great situation. We had our best guys coming up, but we got nothing.

“We were unable to put any pressure on them right there. Obviously, they answered the call. I think they are a good baseball team.
