Bulldog boys tame Tigers

By Cort Reynolds
The host Ada baseball team defeated Waynesfield-Goshen 10-4 in a non-conference game Tuesday evening. The Bulldogs improved to 6-4 with the win, while W-G fell to 1-6 with the defeat.

Ada led 3-2 after one inning, then broke the game open with a five-run second frame. Sophomore center fielder Zac Swaney doubled, hit two singles and scored three runs. He also swiped four bases to ignite the Ada offense. On defense, Swaney made a nice tumbling third inning catch on a deep Tiger fly ball. Junior Phillip Coulson singled, scord two runs and drove in another while stealing three bases.

Junior Dylan East drove in three runs with a hit and scored two runs. Senior Ethan Hall doubled home two runs and scored once. He added two stolen bases.

Junior Landon Blankenship earned the pitching win with four innings of five-hit hurling, and he also scored two runs. Blankenship allowed four earned runs, walked four and struck out five Tigers.

Daniel Mattson singled while Austin Amburgey contributed a single and knocked in a run with one steal. Ada swiped 14 bases, and the Bulldogs out-hit W-G 8-6.

The Bulldogs and Tigers each committed one error. (See stats below.)

Ada (1-1 NWC) is scheduled to visit Delphos Jefferson (4-5, 1-0 NWC) in a league game today.
