Bulldogs’ bats come alive for win over Eagles

West County 14, Greenville 4

FRANKCLAY – The West County Bulldogs bounced back from Thursday’s loss to take it out on the Greenville Bears on Friday, 14-4. Jake Blair pitched in relief and got the win. Blair, striking out only three batters, was backed well by West County’s defense.

James Whitehead, Richard McCoy and James Abel had a good night at the plate. Whitehead, who had four RBI and went 3-5, nearly hit the cycle, but needed only a home run which Abel hit as one of his two hits. Mc Coy went 3-3 with a double.

Other hitters for the Bulldogs included John Barnett 2-3 with a double, Brian Sullivan 2-3, Brad Young 1-3, and Blair 1-2. Greenville had only five hits off of Blair.

West County, 2-2, plays next at home on Tuesday against Valle.

Sullivan 5, Potosi 3

POTOSI – The Potosi Trojans fought back to a tie, but finally suffered a seventh-inning 5-3 loss to the Sullivan Eagles on Friday. The Eagles had pitching troubles, but Potosi could not take advantage.

“They (Sullivan’s pitchers) walked a few and hit a few, but we couldn’t get the timely hit,” said Potosi’s assistant coach Mike Nickelson.

The Trojans had only four hits in the game with Matt Rogers hitting half of them.

Andy Aubuchon was the starting pitcher for Potosi. Aubuchon threw four innings and left with a chance to be the losing pitcher, trailing 3-1. The Trojans battled back and took Aubuchon off the hook tying the game at 3-3 in the fifth inning. Sullivan handed relief pitcher Kevin Brown the loss with their two runs in the last inning.

Potosi will play next at Farmington on Tuesday in a conference game.
