BOSCOBEL - Despite a game that showed promising play from the young Boscobel Bulldogs baseball team, a flurry of errors in the sixth inning helped hand the game to the visiting Cuba City Cubans, 12-1, Friday night.
The Bulldogs were able to place runners on base eight times during the game, but only saw the effort bear fruit once when Dallas Marks was able to steal home during the third inning.
Six errors in the sixth inning and a lack of communication between players on the field and with the coaches led the Cubans to score eight runs, leaving the Bulldogs unable to recover, according to Coach Henry Bray.
“The guys were really disappointed about their performance in the sixth,” said Coach Bray. “The boys work really hard, but the lack of communication really hurts us. These guys play better if they are talking and chattering on the field at all times. That's where the coaches have to help out and keep positive all the time.”
On Tuesday, the Bulldogs headed to Mineral Point for a rematch. The Bulldogs were able to defeat the Pointers when they faced them in the second game of the season on April 8, but could not repeat the performance, losing 0-10 in five innings.
The losses leave the Bulldogs 1-9 overall and 1-8 in conference
