Brenden Bliss led off the game with a walk for the Bulldogs, moved to second on Jayce Lien’s sacrifice bunt, and scored on Jordan Luttrell’s double to left field to give West Albany a 1-0 lead. Curtis Zamora followed with a walk, but Alvarado went on to strike out the next two batters.

In the top of the 3rd, Lien was hit by a pitch with 1 out, stole second base, and advanced to third on a wild pitch before Luttrell drew a walk. With Zamora at the plate, South Salem catcher Aaron Zavala attempted to back pick Lien at third, but what looked like a perfect throw bounced off the back of the diving runner and ricocheted into short left field, allowing Lien to score and make it 2-0. Alvarado was able to get Zamora to fly out and the following batter to strike out to end the frame.

In the bottom of the third, the Saxons went on the offensive. Gavin Fredinburg led off with a single up the middle. Alvarado followed with a bloop double down the left field line, advancing Fredinburg to 3rd. Vogt then hit a slow grounder to the second baseman, but Coach Price made a mistake and sent Fredinburg home, causing him to get thrown out at the plate. Zavala helped people forget, though, when he singled on a line drive to left, scoring Alvarado and sending Vogt to second. On the next pitch, cleanup hitter Ryan Brown launched double that hit off the fence in right-center field, scoring both Vogt and Zavala and giving the Saxons a 3-2 lead. Brown advanced to third on the relay throw home, but was stranded to end the frame.

Both teams traded zeroes in the fourth and fifth inning.

In the top of the 6th, Zamora was hit by a pitch with one out. A strikeout later, Jacob Miller and Evan Cyrus earned back-to-back walks, knocking Alvarado out of the game. Fredinburg came on in relief, quickly getting Cooper Hartsell to ground out to end the inning.

The Saxons went down in order in the bottom of the 6th, setting up a wild finish.

Riley Kerr led off the 7th with a walk. Bliss was then hit by a pitch. With Lien at the plate, both runners advanced on a throwing error. It didn’t end up mattering, though, as Lien, too, drew a walk. With the bases loaded, nobody out, and trailing 3-2, the Bulldogs were in position to not only tie the game, but take the lead. Fredinburg struck out Luttrell for out number one. He then got Zamora to strikeout for out number two. And then, with a 2-2 count, Fredinburg struck out Bennett Markley to end the game.

When it was all said and done, South Salem allowed just one hit – the Luttrell double all the way back in the first inning. Alvarado and Fredinburg combined to strike out 11 West Albany hitters.

Ryan Brown led the charge offensively, driving in two runs on his double in the third.

The Saxons face off against the Bulldogs again on Wednesday, this time in West Albany. Hope to see you all there for the 5:00pm start time!
