They Headed to Newton on Saturday:

Gabe Waugh took to the mound against the Newton Red Sox where he would only allow two hits and one earned run thought 5 1/3 innings when Jacob Taylor was called from third to come in a close the game where Jacob allow 3 hits and 2 earned runs. The team also allowed 3 unearned runs on errors. The Riverdogs where kept off the score board for the first 3 inning when their bats finally came alive in the fourth resulting in the Riverdogs taking home the win 7-6. It was a close one but they battled back.

Carter McLellen took to the mound for the second game against the Newton Canadians the lefty through a great game with 4's and 3 hits though 3 1/3 innings when Micheal Fryer was called in to close the game out with 3k's and the team allowing one run on a passed ball in the fourth. The Riverdogs where on Fire this game score 5 in the first, 6 in the second they where blanked in the third came back hard in the fourth to score 6 more and in the final inning scored one more for a 18-1 victory over the Newton Canadians.

Sunday was much the same where the Riverdogs took to their own field on MacArthur Island where the visiting team from North Delta took on the Dogs to split the games this time.

Game one saw Hudson Doll take to the mound where Hudson saw 2k's and a strong showing from his teammates as they backed up their pitcher play after play in the out field Hudson allowed 5 hits with only 2 of those hits ever crossing the plate and two walks. Connor Kennedy came in part way though the 5th to allow a hit which resulted in a run for North Delta. Connor then came back with a strong showing and help from his teammates to sit the next batter down as center fielder Austin Johanson caught a deep pop fly to center with a hard throw from center to the short stop one of the Delta players themselves in a rundown which the Riverdogs executed perfectly by the Riverdogs resulting in the second out of the inning, the inning ended with a routine 6-3 play. Kennedy closed the game out with 3k's and one run earned. Riverdogs win the first game 9-5 over the North Delta Rays.

The second game the Riverdogs came out with flat bats only getting 3 runs in the first five innings the sixth inning found the Dogs struggling to on the field as well which resulted in North Delta putting up 6 runs 5 of the six runs where unearned do to many errors made by the Riverdogs this inning. Feeling deflated and discouraged Coach Delray Willis talked to the players after a rough defense outing and the Riverdogs where able to come back over the next two inning to score 5 closing the gap but they fell short losing 8-11 to the North Delta Rays.
