The Bulldogs picked up an easy 13-3 win over the Camp Verde Cowboys last Wednesday in Winslow. The win left the Bulldogs with an 8-3 record for the season.
Kuster Kinlecheenie got the win, working three innings and allowing three runs, only one of which was earned, on four hits and no walks while fanning two. Colton Corum worked an inning in relief and struck out two of the three batters he faced. Caleb Cirre worked an inning, and walked a batter and struck out one.
Camp Verde scored a run in the first inning on a single, a double and a Winslow error. The Bulldogs plated nine runs in the bottom of the first on four hits, two Camp Verde errors, four walks and a hit batsman. Corum had a triple, Jon Bollin swatted a double, and C.J. Chacon and Matt Cirre had singles. The Cowboys scored an unearned run in the top of the second without a hit on a Winslow error.
The Cowboys cut the lead to 9-3 in the top of the third on two singles and an error, but Winslow increased its advantage to 12-3 in the bottom of that frame on a hit batsman, doubles by Corum and Matt Cirre, and a single by Bollin.
A double by Corum and a Camp Verde error in the bottom of the fifth ended the scoring and the game under the 10-run mercy rule.
Corum was a perfect 3 for 3 at the plate with three doubles. Matt Cirre was 2 for 2 with a double. Bollin was 2 for 3 with a double. Caleb Cirre was 1 for 2 and Chacon was 1 for 3.
