Bulldogs win back-to-back sectional titles

AVON — The disruptive weather that threatened many baseball games in the regular season paid off in a big way for the Brownsburg Bulldogs.

Battling county and conference rival Avon for the sectional crown Memorial Day evening, Brownsburg led 4-2 in the top of the seventh with two outs when the second lightening/rain delay halted the game.

Following that break in the action, the Bulldogs tacked on an additional three runs to put the Orioles away 7-2, collecting their second sectional title under second-year coach Eric Mattingly.

“We’ve had four rain delays (this season) and each time we’ve come out hot,” Mattingly said. “Having that experience, and it’s kind of weird to say, really paid off.”

Sparking the Bulldogs’ seventh inning, two-out rally was a 3 RBI triple by sophomore Anthony Travelsted.

“(The pitcher) threw me a fastball outside and I just wanted to put it in play at least,” Travelsted said. “It was big and I was jacked up on third.”

While giving up three runs coming out of the second rain delay certainly hurt, the game took a turn for the worse for Avon in the third inning following the first delay for lightning.

Brownsburg took advantage of a few Orioles miscues in the top of the third, scoring three runs on three Avon errors. Tyler Houston’s double plated Garrett Isch and Mike Hartnagel and then Houston made it home for the 3-0 advantage.

Houston finished with two hits and two RBI, while also throwing a complete game from the mound, recording six Ks.

“We just went out there and did our thing,” Houston said. “We just did what we had to do to win.”

Avon coach Troy Drosche lauded praise on his pitcher, Khristian Reynolds, but the Orioles’ defensive lapses were too much to overcome.

“Khristian really pitched a great game and we really didn’t make plays behind him and they scored on them,” Drosche said. “That was pretty much the difference in the game.”
