The Burgin Bulldogs (0-3) lost on a technicality against the Eminence Warriors (2-2) Monday. While the Bulldogs managed to tie the game, they were unable to complete play on the fifth inning and dropped their third game of the season, 7-4.

Senior pitcher Evan May allowed no runs during the first three innings. After a pitching change in the fourth, Eminence scored seven runs and took the lead.

Jackson Qualls managed to calm things down when he took the mound in the fifth inning, sending the last three Warriors back to the dugout.

The Bulldogs managed to tie things up, but the game was called due to poor light conditions.

Because the fifth inning was not completed, the score was reverted back to the fourth inning and Eminence got the win on a technicality.

“I thought we did a great job with Evan May on the mound starting the game off,” said Burgin Head Coach Donnie Edwards. “Obviously, we got a bit behind there, but I thought we did a great job of coming back up. Darkness just happened to catch us before we could finish it up.”
