Dogs Fall in
First Round Playoffs to J.B.Pennington by Joe
|What started to be a pleasant, yet cloudy, Sunday afternoon
baseball game, turned out to be a muddy, rainy game. Dora took on
J. B. Pennington in the first round of the Summer League Dizzy Dean
State baseball tournament in Vinemont. The Bulldogs were defeated
by the Tigers, 2-1. It was a great pitching duel for the first 5 innings
for both teams, only allowing each team at-least 2 base runners. Pennington
scored their two runs in top of the sixth inning, while Dora scored
their only run in the bottom of the seventh inning. Dora will next
face the Corner Yellow Jackets on Tuesday at 8 P.M. in a losers bracket
game. SPECIAL NOTE: Dora will play in the World Series in Hixson,
TN on July 18-20.
the Dawgs by Joe Moon
||It was a tough night for the Dogs. It was hot, humid,
and it took it's toll on both teams. In the first game, it was a wild
west shoot-out, with Curry defeating Dora 23-18. The second game was
a little more exciting, but Curry defeated Dora 8-2. Dora's record
now is 5 wins and 7 losses. Next up for Dora, on Thursday, J. B. Pennington,
at Dora's Wolfe Field at 6 PM and 8 PM. Come out and support the Bulldogs.
Go Dawgs Go !!
Dawgs and Yellow Jackets Split
a Double Header by Joe Moon
||The Bulldogs played the Corner Yellow
Jackets on Thursday, June 5, at Corner. Dora did not look good in
the first game, losing it 14-1 in 5 innings. The second game was a
different story. Dora defeated Corner in a time-shorted game, 11-5.
The Bulldogs, with the split, now have a record of 4 wins and 2 losses.
Next week, Dora at Curry, on Monday night and on Thursday night, Dora
will play at J. B. Pennington. Go Bulldogs Go!!!
|Its was a traditional inter-county rivalry between Dora
and Curry at Curry High School field on Monday. Dora was a bit sluggish
in game 1, managing to get only 3 balls out of the infield. Curry,
backed with a good hitting display and excellent pitching, blasted
Dora 11-0 in 5 innings. The second game was a different story. Dora
was hitting the ball hard, pitching OK, and fielding good. Jorge Williams
blasted a 2-run homerun to help the cause.Yet, the second game was
a close one, with Dora defeating Curry 9-8. Dora's next doubleheader
will be played in Blountsville, against
J. B. Pennington on Thursday.
Dawgs Out of the Playoffs by Joe Moon
||The weather was great for baseball, but not for the
Dora Bulldogs. They played the Corner Yellow Jackets in a losers'
bracket game in the State Tournament on Tuesday. The Bulldogs were
up 5-1 early in the game, but Corner started a barrage of timely runs,
to take a 11-5 lead. Dora never recovered, losing the game and a shot
at a State Tourney title by the score of 13-6. The team will not be
going to the World Series in Tennessee, thus ending the season with
a record of 7 wins and 9 losses. Thanks for letting me bring you Dawg
