(June 1st, 2015) – EDGERTON: After dropping game one to the Bulldogs, Pettisville regrouped for the second contest of a double header against Edgerton. While their play improved in game two, their Bulldog hosts were able to build a solid lead early, keeping control of the match-up throughout.
Pettisville lost to Edgerton 7-1.
With a strong opening to the contest, Edgerton scored 3 runs in each of the first two innings. Pettisville couldn’t keep pace, falling into an early 6-0 deficit. The Bulldogs would tack on another run to that advantage in the bottom of the third, giving them a 7-0 lead. With their backs against the wall, the Blackbirds tried to rally, getting themselves on the board in the top of the fourth. Edgerton was able to limit them to just 1 run, however, and a scoreless fifth inning led to the home team’s 6 run victory.
