Tournament Game 1: Mudcats 11, Riverdogs 3

The end of season tournament got off to a rough start Wednesday night as the Mudcats defeated the Riverdogs 11-3.

While the defense played well for the most part, the offense could never get going as the Riverdogs only accounted for 11 hits as a team. Only three Riverdogs had multiple hits, and none of the 11 hits went for extra bases.

Leading the way for the Riverdogs were Caleb who was 2-3 with two singles and a RBI; Bobby who was 2-2 with two singles and a RBI; and William who was 2-2 with two singles and one run scored. Blake, Matthew N., Jacob, Nolan and Weston all added a hit each. Matthew N. and Weston each scored a run, while Nicholas A. had a RBI.

Defensively, Weston and Caden earned candy bars for their fly ball catches in the outfield. There was also a nice double play where Matthew N. fielded a ground ball up the middle, stepped on second and then fired to Blake at first to complete the play and end the inning.

The loss puts the Riverdogs in the loser’s bracket with their next game on Friday at 5:30 against the Scrappers. Warm ups begin at 4:30.
