Bulldog Baseball Bounces Back

After a two-game losing streak saw the Old Rochester Regional High School baseball team come into its April 20 game against Dennis-Yarmouth in need of a win, the Bulldogs did what they needed to do and dominated. ORR picked up a lopsided win in the away game with a final score of 12-1 after six innings.

            Zach Matson pitched a complete game, only giving up three hits against the Dolphins. Lucas and Ethan McElroy both went 3-for-3 at the plate, and Noah Borgiorno and Owen Bates were also big contributors. Both scored two runs with Borgiorno going 2-for-4 and Bates going 2-for-3.

            Bates stepped up to the pitching mound in the Bulldogs next game against Wareham on April 22, when the Bulldogs won even more convincingly with a final score of 15-0. Bates struck out four and walked two in the three-inning shutout game against the Vikings. Lucas McElroy had another good showing, going 2-for-2 at the plate and scoring four runs. Alec Marsden also played a major part, going 2-for-3 with three runs.

            On Monday, the Bulldogs visited Dighton-Rehoboth, where their momentum came to a halt with a 3-1 loss. The Bulldogs visited Seekonk on Wednesday and will host Somerset Berkley on Friday, April 29.
