Trujillo stars in last game but Dawgs lose 6-4
Ricky Trujillo gave his all in his last game as a Bulldog but it wasn’t enough as the Dawgs lost 6-4 to the Del Sol High School Dragons Wednesday April 28 in the Dawg Pound. Trujillo not only pitched a complete seven inning game, but led the Dawgs in hitting with three hits in four at bats driving in two runs. Seven errors by the Bulldogs did not help earn a win for Trujillo.
The Dragons burnt the Dawgs early with two runs in the first inning. The Dawgs got one back in the bottom of the third inning to trail 2-1. Del Sol added one run in the fourth and fifth inning to take a 4-1 advantage. The Bulldogs rallied for three runs in the sixth inning to notch the game at four runs apiece. The Bulldogs could not hold the Dragons in the seventh and final inning losing 6-4. The loss dropped the Bulldogs to 2-21 for the season. Despite a tough season, the Dawgs can look for better seasons in the future as they return 13 players from this season’s roster including four freshman and two sophomore players. The young players and first year coach Justin Goodsell and his assistant Jeff Jensen should be commended for sticking with their game plan through 23 games.
