The New Franklin baseball team had one of its best games of the season in the Central Activities Conference on Wednesday by beating the Glasgow Yellowjackets 17-0 in four innings.
The Bulldogs, improving to 6-4 overall and 2-1 in the CAC, started the game off slow against Glasgow but was able to pick up steam by pushing across two runs in the second, three again in the third and 12 in the fourth to win by the mercy rule.
New Franklin coach Erich Gerding said it was good to get out of Glasgow with a win and have all of the pitchers still eligible. “The pitching and defense was solid in this game,” Gerding said.
Caleb Hull picked up the win in relief for New Franklin. Gerding used a total of four pitchers in the game for the Bulldogs. Gavin Bishop started the game and pitched one inning, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out one. Hull then came in and pitched one inning in relief and struck out three batters. Meanwhile, after Clayton Wilmsmeyer pitched one inning and struck out two batters, Andy Neal came in and pitched one inning in relief and struck out one batter.
Colten Collyott went 4-for-4 in the game for New Franklin with one double and three RBIs. Tysen Dowell finished the game with two singles and two RBIs while Zac Held added two singles, Andy Neal with one double and three RBIs, Sam Marshall one single and one RBI and Crayton Gallatin with one single.
