Bulldogs lose 5-3 to Eagles

Friday, April 6, 2012 — The baseball teams of East Montgomery and Albemarle took the field on Wednesday evening to complete their rain-shortened game that had barely gotten started on March 22 before a downpour caused the game to be suspended.

Despite a light rain in the middle innings, the game was completed Wednesday as a late Eagles rally lifted the visitors to a 5-3 win over Albemarle at Don Montgomery Park.

Caleb Myrick came on in relief of starter Hunter Stephens and earned the win for the Eagles (9-5, 5-4 YVC). Levi Barnes would take over with a runner on first in the seventh inning and earn the save for East.

Dee Kaiser took the loss for the Bulldogs (6-8, 6-5), going the distance on the mound.

The game started with the Eagles having the bases loaded and two outs. Stephens then drew a bases-loaded walk to give East the early lead.

The Eagles made it 3-0 in the top of the third on a Stephens two-RBI triple that scored Nathan Reynolds and Caleb Myrick.

Albemarle rallied in the fourth and fifth innings to tie the game 3-3.

In the fourth, K.J. McKinney drove in Bryan Blanton with an RBI single, then later scored on a Justin Crump triple.

Kaiser singled to lead off the fifth inning, stole second base and was sacrificed to third by Paul Cagle. Kaiser then scored on a wild pitch to tie the game.

In the seventh inning, Adam Galloway and Nathan Myrick led off with singles and both scored on leadoff hitter Avery Jackson’s 2-RBI triple.

The Bulldogs are scheduled to play at South Davidson tonight.
