The Boyceville baseball team took two to the chin last week after Spring Valley beat them last Thursday 18-1 and then Elmwood won 13-3 on Friday.
The Bulldogs were scheduled to play St. Croix Central on Monday, but rain postponed the game until the following evening, Tuesday (May 20).
Cardinals win in 5
The Bulldogs were buried in the first inning and never recovered after the Cardinals scored ten unanswered runs in Thursday’s away game.
The Bulldogs finally put a runner across home plate in the top of the third inning, which was freshman Micadin Kahl. He was hit home on the RBI by James Palmer.
The Cardinals finished off the game with three runs of their own scored in the third and five more in the fourth before the game ended on the ten-run rule in the fifth.
Zach Newton was the winning pitcher. He pitched five innings for the Cardinals and allowed just two hits and he had no walks.
Raiders win in Boyceville
The Bulldogs were up 3-0 in their game against Elmwood on Friday, however those three runs were the only ones they generated in the 13-3 loss.
The Raiders took the lead in the second inning after scoring six runs. They then followed that with five more in the fifth inning and then two in the fifth.
Scoring for the Bulldogs was Hunter Anderson, Nick Wathke and Brett Boda. Boda himself had an RBI and Jordan Kuhn had the other in the game.
On the schedule, the Bulldogs played SCC on Tuesday night. They will be in Mondovi on Thursday (May 22) and then back at home on Friday to host Colfax.
