Louisiana baseball team starts with three wins
The Louisiana Bulldogs 2013 baseball team broke out with three wins to start the season last week and put themselves on the verge of winning the Clarence Cannon Conference Small Tournament.
The Bulldogs will square off soon with the Highland for the championship game of the tournament, according to Louisiana Head Coach Ryan Griffin. The Bulldogs were trying to schedule the game as the Press-Jounal went to press.
The Bulldogs broke out to a three-run lead in the first inning and that’s really all they needed in the second game of the CCC small tournament on Saturday, March 23 at Wallace Park in Louisiana.
Sophomore pitcher Brandon Holland was brilliant, scattering three hits and one walk over six innings and striking out eight for no runs. Senior third-baseman Greg Pitzer came on relief in the seventh and gave up the Tigers lone run.
The Bulldogs gave up six unearned runs, but managed to hang on to the win their first game of the CCC small tournament.
“The kids were kind of sloppy on defense but we came out in the end,” Griffin said. “We had timely hitting and put the ball in play.”
Smith got the win, scattering five hits over five innings and giving up four unearned runs.
