Game 2: Riverdogs 12, Mudcats 8

In another rocky start, the Riverdogs proved to be true “Comeback Kids” on Tuesday night as they pulled out a win over the Mudcats. The first win of the season was a hard fought battle that showed both the hitting and fielding ability of the team.

Over the first two innings, the Riverdog offense was shut down and the defense allowed the Mudcats to put 7 runs on the board. The third inning proved to be the turnaround as Ryder started off the hitting spree that brought in 6 runs in just one inning. The fourth and fifth innings were less lucrative but regardless there were 3 runs that crossed the plate in each inning.

Many of the Riverdogs had multiple hits and multiple RBIs. Notably, Nathan and Caleb were 3-3 and Preston was 2-2. William racked up 3 RBIs with Will, Matthew, and Mason bringing in 2 RBIs each. Titus, Ryder and Preston each had one RBI as well. Matthew and Caleb also turned a double play to add to the strong defense display in the last 3 innings.

The next game is Thursday at 7:30pm against the Scrappers.
