The Brunswick Bulldogs were trailing the Park View Dragons 7-2 going into the bottom of the sixth but a four run performance in that inning pulled them to within one to make the game very interesting.

Park View buckled down in the top of the 7th and scored four runs that the Bulldogs couldn’t answer and the PV squad got away with an important district win, 11-6.

Dragon hurler Mason Mills got the start on the mound for the Dragons and put up a pretty impressive performance. He pitched 5 solid innings allowing just 3 hits, 2 runs, 1 strike out and no walks.

Reliever Justyn Hudson opened the 5th on the mound and got tagged early in his stint but settled down to close out the game sealing the win for Mills. Hudson pitched 2 innings , allowed 4 runs off 3 hits, walked 2 and struck out 2.

Offensively the Dragans hit just .200 but the hits came at opportune times and resulted in 9 RBIs. Third baseman Brandon Rolfe was the only Dragon with multiple hits going 2 for 3 with 2 ribbies and a walk. Hunter Sykes, Cameron Sheets, Herbey Burgart and Jaison Dugger each had one RBI to round out the Dragon scoring.

Going into the top of the 6th trailing 7-2, the Bulldogs were in desperate need of a rally and they got one. Sophomore Bulldog J. Wesson opened the side with a single, followed by C. Cleaton’s single to move Wesson into scoring position. Both Wesson and Cleaton would come around to score.

The Bulldogs scored two more runs with J. Hudson on the mound for PV before the Dragon reliever finally found his rhythm and struck the next batter out to end the bleeding.

Leading by just one and needing some insurance, PV got a rally in the top of the seventh of their own to answer the Bulldogs. Trevor Tanner reached on an error by the 3rd baseman then Justyn Hudson and Jefferson Barmoy loaded the bases by drawing walks. Jaison Dugger then drew a walk of his own scoring Tanner and keeping the bases full with no outs.

Brandon Rolfe then tagged a Bulldog fastball for a sharply hit grounder up the middle scoring Hudson and Barmoy . Hunter Sykes sacrificed his at bat with a ground out to 2nd scoring Dugger and advancing Rolfe to 3rd. Chris Gray then struck out and Cameron Sheets flied out to end the inning.

PV had their insurance and as it turned out it wasn’t needed as the Dragons held Brunswick scoreless in the bottom of the 7th to take the much needed 11- 6 win.

Dragons crush Sussex in game 1 of doubleheader, second game called due to rain

The Dragons hosted the Tigers of Sussex Central High School for a doubleheader on Thursday night, May 10th at PVHS Field. The games were a regularly scheduled game and a make-up game that was postponed earlier in the season due to bad weather.

The first game opened with a bang for the Dragons as they were able to score 19 runs in the first two innings, prompting the Sussex squad to forfeit.

The second game had just gotten started and the Tigers were in possession of a 2-1 lead when the skies opened and the rain poured down ending the game as a no decision for either team.

With their victory in the first game, the Dragons improved to 16-3 on the season and will face the Dukes of Windsor High School on Tuesday, May 15 at PVHS field in the first round of the Tri-Rivers District playoffs.
