Pictured is #6 Bulldog Seth Hunt
The Waldron Bulldogs swung full force into their baseball season like Evander Holyfield facing Muhammad Ali in a boxing match. The boys headed to Mena Tuesday night to take on the Bearcats in a wild extra-inning baseball game.
Within the first five innings, the score was held firmly in place with a 2-2 tie. Waldron and Mena were able to keep each other from scoring until the ninth inning when the Bearcats pulled away with two runs while the Bulldogs made one bringing the final score to 4-3 Mena.
Junior Seth Hunt made two runs and one hit while senior Tyler Owens made one run and two hits. Also securing one hit each for the Bulldogs was junior Carson Cain, sophomores Bryson Bailey, Drake Carnley, and Clayton Montgomery and freshman Blake Owens.
Pitching a great first game was Seth Hunt with 77 pitches striking out eight batters. Tyler Owens made 67 pitches striking out eight batters as well. And sophomore Braden Williams struck out one batter during his fifteen pitches.
The Bulldogs did a great job in their first game of proving that they are able to take the game as far as it needs to go without giving up. Waldron will stay home for their next game and host the De Queen Leopards on Friday, March 1 at 4 p.m.
