The Bulldogs had no problem making contact on a chilly night in Roebuck as they accounted for 19 hits, 11 RBI's, & 12 runs. Dorman struggled for hits accounting for just 5 total. Tanner McCallister started off the game on the mound for the Cavaliers and had an impressive first inning, but the slope mounted in the second when Boiling Springs plated 8 runs in an inning that lasted 35 minutes.
The big inning was thanks to a single by Adam Pucetas, a single by Mason Streater, a home run by John Michael Faile, a single by Max Bailey, and a single by Dawson Taylor. Daniel Wetmore finished the game for Dorman, allowing only 4 more runs the rest of the game. Dawson Taylor gets the win for the Bulldogs in a game where he struck out four and walked six. When asked about the team Dawson says, "Its a great team and we are having a fun year already and we are just now getting started."

On the offensive side for Boiling Springs, John Michael Faile continues to see the ball well. Faile, as well as Streater & Brasher all accounted for three hits tonight. Eight different Bulldogs had hits in the win and five different players each had an RBI. Coach Lipscomb had several thoughts after the game including the following statement about the Cavaliers. "Dorman is Dorman, they are always going to compete and we came out hitting the baseball tonight and six through nine came out tonight and I'm proud of all my guys." When asked about the big night of hitting, Lipscomb said, "Hitting is contagious, our guys had quality at bats and we just have to keep at it." Said "John Michael Faile is seeing everything and everything thrown at him looks like a cantaloupe. Says he is taking good cuts and has a ton of potential.
The Bulldogs go for the sweep tomorrow night as they host Dorman at 7:30.
