Jamie Fenske’s GMLOK Bulldogs are off to a 5-2 start. Included was a five-game win streak, notable considering the Bulldogs are down two starters (best pitcher Drew Copley, Cody Merkel). They beat G-E/A-C, Chatfield, and L-A to run their streak to a handful. The Wolverine/Knights fell 19-3 (five innings). Nick Ramaker (3-4, 2B, HR, 3 RBI, 3 R) hit his second home run. Zach Myhre (3-5, two 2B, 4 RBI, R), Reid Kruegel (3-5, 2 RBI, 3 R), Nolan Skifter (2-3, 2B, 2 RBI, 3 R), Jacob Welch (2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, R), and Ethan Fenske (2-4, 2B, RBI, R) all had multiple hits. Zach Bubany (4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 10 K) got the win. The Bulldogs then beat Chatfield in the first (five-inning) game of a double-shot. Dylan Lunning’s 2-run single in the top of the fourth plated the only game’s only runs, a 2-0 Bulldog win. Fenske (5 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 6 K) took the “W.” Ben Ihrke (2-2) led the Gophers. Game two was suspended tied 1-1 in the second. L-A then fell 9-5. Welch (3-4, 2 RBI, 2 R) went yard. N-Skifter (2-3, RBI, R) and E-Fenske (1-2, 2B, 3 R) helped. Bubany (7 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 6 K, 0 BB, Win, 2B, RBI) got the win. FC/L halted GMLOK’s win streak via a 7-2 win (see below). The Bulldogs are 4-2 (TRC), 5-2 (overall).
