Bulldogs advance past Orioles



Avon responded as Dylan Jones’ 2 RBI triple in the bottom of the fifth scored Jake Smith and Khristian Reynolds and brought the Orioles within three.

“Dylan’s our leader and came with a big hit at that time to get back in the game,” Drosche said.

Brownsburg didn’t flinch, scoring twice more in the last innings to close out the game.

“We had a big fourth inning and then came back after they rallied,” Mattingly said. “They brought it down to three and for guys that had not played a lot of varsity baseball, we put a few runs on the board.”

Brownsburg’s Tyler Houston had a workmanlike effort from the mound, pitching a complete game.

Sanburn struck out six Bulldogs before being pulled in the fourth as Smith and Reynolds finished out the night’s pitching duties for the Orioles.

Drosche offered no excuses for the Orioles other than they simply did not execute as well as they are capable.

“It was miserable, but it was miserable for both teams,” Drosche said of the weather. “We will get better from this and there’s no doubt about it. We have a very solid team that’s playing well together. We just didn’t play well today.”

Brownsburg advances to take on Plainfield beginning at 1 p.m. at Avon today. The winner of that contest plays in the finals, which are slated to begin approximately at 4 p.m.

The Plainfield/Brownsburg winner will take on the victor of the Cascade/Tri-West matchup at 1 p.m.

“One of our first goals is to win the Hendricks County Tournament,” Mattingly said. “We had a tough draw coming out and facing an opponent that is in our conference and knows us really well.

“We wanted to come out and attack and set a tone for the weekend. With winning tournaments being a season goal, our seniors and upperclassmen were able to get the mentality that we need to come out and attack.”
