Bulldogs win Saturday contests
New Albany bounced back from a disappointing Friday night loss to Tupelo, defeating Hernando and West Union on Saturday.
In the ‘Dawgs game against the Tigers, Josh Creekmore and Riley Alef each had two hits in the 3-2 win. In the third inning with runners on second and third, Andrew Ballard brought in the Bulldogs’ first run to tie the game at one and New Albany scored twice in the fifth to take the lead.
Tyler Basil earned the win on the mound, allowing two runs off six hits with six strikeouts. Drew Wray had the save, pitching the final inning.
In the Bulldogs’ game against West Union, an eight-run second inning led New Albany to a 22-5 win. Several players had multiple hits for the ‘Dawgs, with James David Morris and Joshua Googe leading with four and three hits, respectively. Wray, Ballard and Goode each had two hits, and Mason Maxey picked up the win on the mound, allowing five runs off eight hits with four strikeouts.
The successful weekend came after New Albany dropped a tough 2-1 decision to Tupelo Friday night. Tyler Beaty allowed only two hits against the Golden Wave while registering 16 strikeouts. Beaty also had the Bulldogs’ only hit in the game.
New Albany (5-2) will next play on Monday against Senatobia at the Oxford Spring Break Tournament.
