NEW WATERFORD- It’s appropriate that this year’s underdog team has a mascot of a Bulldog. East Palestine continued to stay hot in a 9-6 victory over Western Reserve at Next Level Complex on Tuesday. It was a game that was supposed to be played at Western Reserve, but the field was not suitable for play.
In the second inning, East Palestine got their offense started. Cooper Vance drove in one when he singled. The Bulldogs also scored four runs in the fourth inning. The big bats were led by Sean Helpy, Dalton Vance, and Cameron Wischerman, who each had RBIs in the inning.
Cooper Vance led the Bulldogs to victory on the hill. He allowed ten hits and six runs over seven innings, striking out six and walking one.
Windham took the loss for Western Reserve. He surrendered eight runs on eight hits over four innings, striking out one.
The Bulldogs will face off on Wednesday against defending State Champions, South Range. First pitch is set for 5 pm.
