Springtown scored three runs in the top of the seventh to edge the Bridgeport Bulls Monday 7-6.
The young Bulls outhit Springtown 9-7 but committed five errors.
“We just didn’t make the routine play when the game was on the line in the seventh inning,” said Bridgeport coach Ted Leps. “We have a lot of players with no varsity baseball experience. These non-district games are going to be very important for us.”
Bridgeport threw four different pitchers – Trey Cook, Daniel Garcia, James Gray and Corbin Coleman. Gray took the loss, allowing four runs on two hits in two-and-a-third innings.
Bridgeport scored three in the first to take a 3-0 lead and led 6-3 through five. Springtown scored one in the sixth before plating three in the seventh.
Garcia led the Bridgeport offense, going 3-for-4 with a double and two RBIs.
