It turned out that, according to Iowa High School rules, pitchers can't throw more than nine innings in the game. Since Ottumwa had accidentally broken this rule, the Bulldogs, whether they chose to continue to the game or not, would ultimately have to forfeit the game.

"I just got caught up in the whole game," Jaeger said. "I was aware of it [the rule], which is what kind of bums me out that we lost it off that. That was a great played high school baseball game."The option is you can finish it and what happens then is there AD (Activities director) calls our AD and eventually it becomes a forfeit anyway. So, you either A) play it out, or B) just call it then, and I chose to forfeit because I didn't want our guys to go forth and win that ball game and find out later that we had to forfeit."

Instead of moping over the unlucky break, the Bulldogs came out reinvigorated in game two. Seth Griffiths, who had a rough first game at the plate, came up huge for the Bulldogs in the nightcap. With Ottumwa already leading 1-0, Griffiths ripped a three-run double into the left centerfield gap that upped the Bulldogs lead to 4-0 in the bottom of the second. Schulz followed with a double of his own that increased Ottumwa's lead to 5-0.

The Bulldogs lead had increased to 6-0 when Schulz ripped a three-run double in the bottom of the fifth that increased Ottumwa's lead to 9-0. The Bulldogs extracted one more run from the inning off a Warrior error to pick up the victory.

"We realized we didn't get things done in nine innings of the first game, so we knew we had to get things done in the second game," Collin Schulz said.

Ottumwa (6-9, 5-3) plays at Dest Moines North Monday in CIML Metro Conference action.
