The Virgin Valley High School baseball team traveled to Boulder City Monday afternoon, April 25 to face the league-leading Eagles and their ace pitcher Peyton Koopman. The Dawgs didn’t have a chance as Koopman pitched a perfect five inning game. The game was called at the end of five due to the 10 run mercy rule.
Only three Bulldogs put the ball in play, the first two and the last on a grounder to end the game. In between, Koopman sent 12 straight Bulldogs down on K’s. Koopman also helped his cause with three hits and three RBI’s. The Eagles scored four runs in the second, one in the fifth, two in the fourth and three runs in the fifth to run away with the game.
The loss dropped the Bulldogs league record to 2-9 with three league games remaining. The Dawgs host Sunrise Mountain on May 3 and finish their season traveling to Del Sol on May 5.
