Diamond Doggs fall to LHS
Diamond Doggs fall to LHS
Wednesday, April 1. 2009
When you play the defending state champions, you have little room for error.
The Winder-Barrow High School baseball team learned that lesson Monday afternoon when it traveled to Loganville to face the reigning king of Class AAAA.
In the end, the Diamond Doggs dropped a 5-4 decision in a contest which coach Brian Smith knows his team could have easily won.
“It was a tight game the whole way,” Smith said. They came back from three down and played hard to go ahead.”
WBHS standout Dustin Dunagan once again pitched well working a complete game. Smith said Dunagan threw well enough to get the win Monday afternoon although the team fell a run short.
“We had a chance to beat them,” Smith said. “We gave them a couple of runs and that hurt.”
Despite the loss, the WBHS coach took some positives from Monday’s contest.
“The good news is we hit the ball early,” Smith said. “The bad news is we struggled offensively late.”
Once LHS changed pitchers, the Bulldogg batters had trouble connecting.
WBHS is scheduled to host Monroe Area today (Wednesday) at 5:30 p.m. and will travel to Madison County Friday for a matchup with the Region 8-AAAA leader at 5:30 p.m.
Monday’s loss was the second of the season in region play for the Bulldoggs. The top four teams qualify for the postseason.
