Bulldogs bounce back with impressive sweep of Indianola

(Continued)

Ottumwa, however, offered a swift riposte in the bottom of the sixth. First, Sammy Garrett and Roark kicked off the inning with consecutive singles. Then, Winn, who has been one of Ottumwa’s hottest hitters this season, got a hold of a pitch that cleared the centerfield fence and gave the Bulldogs a 4-1 edge.

“I was just trying to hit it to an open space so I could get a base hit, but it went a lot further,” Winn said.

The three-run lead was more than enough of a cushion for Moore, who worked a scoreless seventh inning to give Ottumwa the victory.

The Bulldogs sprayed the field with four-straight hits in the bottom of the first inning and took advantage of a fielding blunder by Indianola to take a 2-0 lead in game two. Then, in the bottom of the fourth, Ottumwa used a blitz of singles by Chelsea Griffiths, Sammy Garrett and Roark, some nifty base running by Roark and Garrett, and an Indian mishap in the field to tack three more runs on the board.

The Indians used three-straight two-out singles in the top of the fifth to narrow the gap to 5-1. Megan Robertson, who started the game on the mound for Ottumwa, ran into some trouble again in the sixth when Indianola began the inning with two singles. Ottumwa Coach Frank Huston decided it was time for a change and Moore returned to the mound to replace Robertson. The Indians managed to score one run before the inning came to a close. Moore went on to work a scoreless seventh to secure the sweep for Ottumwa.

The top of the Bulldogs batting order really delivered at the plate for Ottumwa in game two. Garrett went 3-4 with two doubles and an RBI and Roark went 3-4 as well. Additionally, Sammons went 2-3.
