Bulldogs split with Marshalltown

(Continued)

With two outs and a runner on, Fuller was intentionally walked. Blake Mooney foiled the strategy with an RBI single.

“I just tried to stay calm and relaxed and to take advantage of the opportunity to help the team,” said Mooney.

The second Bulldog run scored on an errant pick-off throw. After a walk, Tyler Johns had a two-RBI triple to put Ottumwa up 5-2.

The Ottumwa defense committed three errors in the top of the seventh, allowing the Bobcats to score four unearned runs for a 6-5 lead.

“Our defense has been pretty solid,” said Jaeger. “That was definitely uncharacteristic of us.”

The top four hitters in the Bulldog line-up were only one for 11 in the first game but all contributed to the two runs scored to win it. Griffiths drew a walk to put runners on first and second with no outs.

Colin Schultz’s sacrifice bunt moved both runners into scoring position. Kyle Keck’s fly ball to center was dropped and the Bulldogs tied it at six. Fuller was then walked intentionally for the second time.

“I’ve never been walked twice intentionally in a game,” said Fuller. “I’ve been hitting good lately. I guess they did the right thing.”

Mooney, the next hitter, struck out but the low pitch went back to the screen and Griffiths scampered home with the winning run.

Another Bulldog with a strong game one performance was catcher Seth Staton. He threw out four Bobcat runners trying to steal.

The Bobcats opened game two with a run in the first. The Bulldogs took a quick 3-1 lead as Fuller and Mooney each had RBI doubles followed by Mitch Stuchel’s RBI single.

Marshalltown’s two second inning runs tied it at three but the Bulldogs added two in the home second. The top of the order started to take over for Ottumwa. Schultz had an RBI triple and Keck followed with a RBI double.
